A degree in biotechnology is beneficial for students who are willing to explore its benefits along with those who have done their research on physics, biotechnology, medical science.
The study of Nanotechnology is a blend of Engineering, Biotechnology, Medical Science, Information and technology and physics. Though there is more emphasis on physics in Nanotechnology, it is as interlaced with biology as well. After all the foundation of biology also rests on the nanoscale.
One of the big areas of Bionanotechnology is target drug delivery. Medical drugs that are not suitable for our digestion and to divert it to research on drugs used for tumour are available through this technology. Due to the peculiar downsizing nature of Nanoparticles, they can communicate with the other molecular cells and structures. This Bio-Nano Interaction offers infinite possibilities. Bionanotechnology is opening the likelihood of studying in detail the nano scaling of molecular structures and how it is helpful for the functioning of your daily life.
