Biological systems are extremely important in nanotechnology and many new applications are being developed by mimicking natural systems. Biology is extremely good at self-assembling complex, multi-functional systems at the nanoscale, e.g. cell membranes or DNA. By understanding how these systems work, nanotechnologists are developing new biosensing, biomedical and materials applications, e.g. the ion-channel biosensor. This subject investigates the science that underlies these biological processes and how it is applied in contemporary nanotechnologies.
