Nano-biotechnology refers to the science of integration between biology and nanotechnology. This being a very emerging branch, nanobiology and bionanotechnology are its sister terms. Various concepts that are being emerged from nanobiotechnology are nanodevices, nanocantilevers and nanoparticles. This usually uses biological systems to devise technical aspects for the development of novel products. Nanobiotechnology as defined in broad terms an interdisciplinary field, that includes fields such as diverse as molecular chemistry, molecular biology, material physics and quantum electronics. The areas related have a widespread scope in research that encompasses studies like device physics, molecular self assembly and atomics scale studies. These areas are not only light defined but are remote and lot of potential research can be done. Nanotechnology is the technology of functional systems at the molecular and atomic scale. Nanobiotechnology basically relies on the idea of producing products that can integrate into the organismâs system whereby effectively carry out the function it was meant for. Ideally two main strategies are being employed in this study on nanobiotechnology: top-down and bottom-up. Whereas in one molecular components are being integrated into an assembly, other forms the basis of forming nano scale particles from larger molecules. Areas such as nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, nanomechanics, and nanoionics etc. have played an elemental role in deciding the fate of this arena and have been immensely integrated to its core for the development of better bots. Molecular nanotechnology, also referred to as molecular manufacturing, studies the development of nanosystems that are devised, operating at molecular and sub-atomics levels. Molecular nanotechnology is the study related to the nanoscale devices that operate maximally at molecular levels. This study devises an object by way of mechanosynthesis thereby adding atom one at a time to form the desired nanoscale device. However such nano scale devices manufacturing procedures should not be confused with conventional technologies that are ardent in making traditional carbon tubes, nanofibers, nanoscale particles etc.
