about

Bionanotechnology is the key integrative technology of the 21stcentury and aims to use the knowledge, gathered from the natural construction of cellular systems, for the advancement of science and engineering. Investigating the topology and communication processes of cell parts can lead to invention of novel biological devices with exciting applications. Though microscale to nanoscale research offers an excellent space for the development of futuristic technologies, a number of challenges must be overcome. Due to paucity of a dedicated literature on the protein based nanodevices we bring you this monograph that combines collective research works of scientists probing into this fascinating universe of bionanotechnology. The monograph has been written with an aim of surveying engineering design principles of biomolecular nanodevices, prototype nanodevices based on redox proteins, bacteriorhodopsins and natural fibers, and touching upon the future developments in the field.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Bionanotechnology is a new and exciting field of study. . This . is a fine attempt to bring together some review articles on frontier areas of the subject, with particular reference to proteins as nanosystems. . The editors have assembled a panel of eminent scientists who have authored . the book. The reviews are well written and are readable. . this would be a useful source of information on selected areas of Bionanotechnology to the more serious learners of the subject. " (V.Lakshminarayanan, Journal of Ecobiology, Vol. 19 (1), 2006)
