Abstract

The advances made in biotechnology and nanotechnology for building complex bionanostructures on surfaces with nanometer precision are discussed. The use of biomolecules for nanoscale has become an effective solution for difficult positioning problems in the fabrication of nanostructures. To fabricate efficiently with biomolecules and make use of their unique properties, a radical shift away from the high energy, high vacuum processing paradigm of conventional micro and nanofabrication is needed. An exciting opportunities for bionanofabrication have also emerged in the field of synthetic biology and recombinant protein engineering.
