Recent advances in Nano biotechnology: A review
Author(s): Athulya K, Anitha T
Abstract: In the modern era of industrialization and pollution, as new diseases outbreaks day by day, it is important to find novel treatment system. Nanobiotechnology has been proved for its better application in biology and medicine. This paper reviews three recent works on Nanobiotechnology that has been illustrated the successful application of Nanomaterials and Nanotools against current biological problems. Yang Yue et al. tested the biological effect of toxic nanoparticle in fish cell and algal cell. And it is proved that the action of certain protein in the algal cell membrane prevents its action in the algal cell, while the fish cell gets affected. Savita Bisht has illustrated the successful application of nanoparticle encapsulated curcumin or “Nanocurcumin” against cancer. Sangeetha and Kumaraguru have synthesized metal nanoparticle from seaweeds. All these findings support the same fact that Nanobiotechnology has become a vital field in modern biology and medicine.
