Nanobiotechnology is an emerging technology on the interface between biotechnology and nanotechnology. Biotechnology manipulates the molecules and processes of biological systems to gain practical improvements, for example, in producing harvestable yields of useful drugs and antibodies, or in developing

Nanobiotechnology combines the functionality of biological nanomachinery with the power and speed of electronics. This conceptual image symbolizes the integration of macromolecular nanomachinery with microelectronics.
