Nanotechnology in Biochemistry
The science of nanotechnology deals with the creation, investigation and utilization of systems that are 1000 times smaller than the components currently used in the field of microelectronics. Biotechnology deals with metabolic process with microorganisms. Convergence of these two technologies results in growth of nanotechnology in Biochemistry. The biomedical applications of nanotechnology are the direct products of such convergences. The challenges facing by the scientists and engineers working in the field of nanotechnology are quite enormous and extraordinarily complex in nature. Nanotechnology in biochemistry presents many revolutionary opportunities in the fight against all kinds of cancer, cardiac and neurodegenerative disorders, infection and other diseases. Researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) & the University of California at Berkeley are combining nanotechnology with biochemistry, which resulted in discovery of unique synthetic membranes that enable them to directly control signaling activity in living T cells from the immune system. In this way nanotechnology and biochemistry will definitely bring out many challenging research works in the upcoming days.
