About Program

One of the most significant aspects of nanotechnology emerged through amalgamation with biotechnology, which employ the knowledge and techniques of biology to work in conjunction with genetics, molecular biology and cellular processes in order to develop products and services that find applications in forensic science, Pharmacy, healthcare, agriculture and environment. The world is continuously changing and change come with myriad of problems these can be addressed by using nanobiotechnology which play a vital role in developing and implementing many useful tools in the study of life. The silent features of nanobiotechnology which make it useful in different area of science are as follows

In forensic science, nanobiotechnology used for the development of nanosensors that can be acts as device for detection of various biological evidence such as blood, semen, and saliva. For fulfilment of unmet need of healthcare, nanobiotechnology can be used for diagnostics, imaging, drug development, drug delivery, gene delivery, and in bio molecular engineering. They can also be utilized to develop biomimetic machines which are machines that mimic the actions of any natural organism. In agriculture sector, product developed through Nano biotechnology used for achieving high crop yield with minimum environment damage due to overuse of pesticides which possessdeleterious effect on soil flora and fertility.

For environmental management, nanobiotechnology used for generation of green fuels and pollutant degradation.

The scope of M. Sc. Forensic nanotechnology (Nanobiotechnology) not only lies in forensic science but also myriad of science which made this field a silver bullet and a futuristic aid to many of the existing issues faced by the scientific community and end users of current technology.
