Additional recommended knowledge
Bionanotechnology may also refer to the use of biomolecules for applications in nanotechnology. A major example of this is DNA nanotechnology, which uses self-assembling nucleic acid structures to control matter at the nanoscale.
In a wider sense, bionanotechnolgy refers to synthetic technology based on the principles and chemical pathways of living organisms. It encompasses the study, creation, and illumination of the connections between structural molecular biology and nanotechnology, since the development of nanomachinery might be guided by studying the structure and function of the natural nano-machines found in living cells.
