Introduction

Nanobiotechnology is the application of nanotechnology in biological fields. Nanobiotechnology is a multidisciplinary field that currently engages researchers in conventional as well as advanced avenues of engineering and natural sciences.The recent developments in nanobiotechnology have impacted various socio-economic sectors, including medical, agriculture, food, textile, and other industries. Although the integration of nanomaterials with biology has led to the development of diagnostic devices, contrast agents, analytical tools, therapy, and drug-delivery vehicles, bionanotechnology research is still in its infancy. The full potential of developments in this field have yet to be realized.

This book discusses various nano-engineered materials or nanocarriers that are used in different situations. It presents 8 chapters that cover the application of nanobiomaterials in environmental remediation, nanofertilisers, nanobiotics against antimicrobial resistance, nanobiosensors in pathogen detection, and nanotoxicity assessments. Each chapter is structured into easy-to-read sections that explain fundamental and applied concepts of nanobiomaterials. Readers will gain a current view of the biotechnological application of modern nanomaterials and nanoparticles. The book is intended to be a primer for students and researchers in agriculture, biotechnology, and biomedical engineering courses.

Audience:

Undergraduate and graduate students of nanobiotechnology and biomedical engineering.

Foreword

Research in nanobiotechnology is gaining prime attention as it is directly affecting many socio-economic sectors including medical, agriculture, food, textile, and other industries. Biological, chemical and physical sciences are the backbone of nanobiotechnology. In recent years, nanobiotechnology research has provided solutions for several problems including human health because of its integrated approach involving various disciplines. Lately, it has been integrated rapidly with new emerging branches like molecular biology, pharmaceutical chemistry, animal cell science and drug development and discovery for output-oriented research.

This eBook ‘Nanobiotechnology: Principles and Applications’ presents a broad overview of the principles and applications of nanotechnology in the diverse areas of biotechnology. The expert group of authors exhibit distinguished expertise and will belong to the academic world, creating a broad perspective. This volume covers the basics and applications of nanotechnology in drug delivery, combating pathogens, nanobiosensors, improving plant health by fertilizers, bioremediation, disease sensing, and diagnosis.

As a biotechnology scientist, I am happy to recommend this eBook to the students of universities as a text and reference book both. The theory, concepts and technique’s part will be used as textbook and the application part as a standard reference. This eBook has been written in a way so that it is student-friendly with clean diagrams and protocols of specific techniques. I sincerely hope that the eBook has been prepared with scientific skills and will serve as a useful document for graduate and undergraduate students.
