About this title Discussions of the basic structural, nanotechnology, and system engineering principles, as well as an introductory overview of essential concepts and methods in biotechnology, will be included. Text is presented side-by-side with extensive use of high-quality illustrations prepared using cutting edge computer graphics techniques. Includes numerous examples, such applications in genetic engineering. Represents the only available introduction and overview of this interdisciplinary field, merging the physical and biological sciences. From the Author: Using the natural nanomachines found in living cells and building upon the nanoscale principles of their operation, nanotechnology is a reality today, and is accessible with remarkably modest resources. In this book, I present many of the lessons that may be learned from biology and how they are being applied to nanotechnology.

Bionanotechnology: Lessons from Nature
But atoms are almost unbelievably small; a million times smaller than objects in our familiar world. Their properties are utterly foreign, so our natural intuition and knowledge of the meter-scale world is useless at best and misleading at worst. How can we approach the problem of engineering at the atomic scale? When men and women first restructured matter to fit their needs, an approach opposite from nanotechnology was taken. Instead of building an object from the bottom up, atom-by-atom, early craftsmen invented a top- down approach.

Aucune remarque pour cette diapositive Bionanotechnology from nature 1. Nature depicts how soluble molecules are able to recognize and bind to specific materials to shape into nanostructures 4. Nature offer functional proteins and many other compounds at cellular level of great significance to life on earth. Gecko can climb smooth surfaces without falling due to its nanostructured body hair The cupula is the eye of fish which can sense underwater hydrodynamic motion and is capable of detecting predators and prey Inspired by this natural phenomenon, scientists have created artificial sensors similar to cupular structure which can sense movements better than blind fish itself!
