About the Book :
This book is a humble attempt towards sharpening the knowledge of undergraduates, postgraduates and all researchers who are interested in pursuing their research in the field of Bio-Nanotechnology. It focuses on fundamental Bionanomachines and their applications.
The book begins with the explanations that Nanotechnologies fall between the usual daily macrophysics and the quantum mechanics and covers their unique properties. Then it encompasses the domain of Biological system that efficiently functions at nano-scale using various biological nano-machines and custom made molecules. Fundamentals and applications of noble metal nanoparticles nano-engineered by different living systems and an up-to-date review of how DNA, RNA and proteins are so stable in a milieu fully crowded with other smaller organic and inorganic molecules, how molecular crowding endorses self assembly are presented in detail. The book also covers various aspects of carbon nanomaterials.
The highlight of the book is the fundamental philosophy in manoeuvring artificial intelligent machines capable of following electronic instruction. Birth of nanorobots using natural spare parts and their organization into a functional machine is main attribute of this book. It is an all embracing introduction to use of nanoscale architecture in medicine, environmental remediation, utilization of food, agriculture, cosmetics and synthetic nano-implants.
