Nano biotechnology refers to the intersection of nanotechnology and biology. Given that the subject is one that has only emerged very recently, Bio nanotechnology and Nano biotechnology serve as blanket terms for various related technologies. The most important objectives that are frequently found in Nano biology involve applying Nano tools to relevant medical/biological problems and refining these applications. Developing new tools, such as peptoid Nano-sheets, for medical and biological purposes is another primary objective in nanotechnology. New Nano-tools are often made by refining the applications of the Nano-tools that are already being used. The imaging of native biomolecules, biological membranes, and tissues is also a primary topic for the Nano-biology researchers. Other topics concerning Nano biology consists of the use of cantilever array sensors and the application of Nano-photonics for manipulating molecular processes in living cells.

The biotechnology industry is largely divided into the medical and agricultural markets. Although enterprising biotechnology is also applied to other areas, such as the industrial production of chemicals and bioremediation, the use in these areas is still specialized and reserved. On the other hand, the medical and agricultural industries have undergone biotechnology revolutions. This has included new research efforts, development programs, and business strategies to discover, alter, or produce novel biomolecules and organisms through bioengineering. Biotechnology has been involved in the initial drug discovery and screening stages. Most major pharmaceutical companies have active target-discovery research programs heavily dependent on biotechnology.
Microfluidics is both the science which studies the behaviour of fluids through micro-channels, and the technology of manufacturing microminiaturized devices having chambers and tunnels through which fluids flow. Microfluidics deal with very small volumes of fluids, down to femtoliters (fL) which is a quadrillionth of a litre. Fluids react very differently on the micrometric scale than they do in everyday life. These unique features are the key for new scientific experiments and innovations.
Food biotechnology is the use of technology to transform the genes of our food sources. Our food sources are animals, plants, and microorganisms. With food biotechnology, we form new species of animals and plants, for example, specifically animals and plants that we eat. The technology may not only improve the nutritional quality of staple foods, but can also decreases the need to cultivate crops on deforested land. With food biotechnology, we utilize what we know about science and genetics to improve the food we eat. By improvement, we mean either making the food cheaper to produce, longer lasting, more disease resistant, or extra nutritious.

Biotech played and will continue to play an essential role in Cancer, ranging from monoclonal antibodies, immuno-oncology, CAR-T and everything in between. Cancer is a group of deadly diseases characterized by uncontrolled cell division leading to growth of abnormal tissue. it is also called as degeneration of one type of cell within an organism into something .It is believed that cancers arise from both genetic and environmental factors that lead to aberrant growth regulation of a stem cell population, or by the dedifferentiation of more mature cell types.
The “traditional” ways to tackle cancer are chemotherapy (‘chemo’) and radiotherapy. One big problem with these techniques, is the lack of specificity as chemo and radiotherapies are targeting cancer cells, but also healthy cells.

A biosensor is a device that has the potential to observe a particular substance or analyte with high distinction. Examples of such analytes include glucose, lactate, glutamate and glutamine. Most of the biosensors are capable of considering the concentration of an analyte in an aqueous solution, mainly producing an electrical signal, which is considered to be proportional to the analyte’s concentration in its determining range. An enzymatic biosensor consists of an enzyme, which identifies and then works with the target analyte producing a chemical signal, a transducer, which produces a physical signal from the chemical one, and an electronic amplifier, which first determines and then amplifies the signal.

Bio-degradation is a natural way of recycling wastes, or breaking down organic matter into nutrients that can be used by other organisms. The word "Bio-" from the prefix signifies that the decomposition is completed by a enormous variety of bacterium, fungi, insects, worms, and other organisms that consumes the dead substances and recycle it into new forms and "Degradation" denotes the decay. In nature, nothing remains waste because everything gets recycled. The waste material from one organism can be transformed into the food for others, providing nutrients and energy while breaking down the waste organic matter. Some organic materials will break down much quickly than others, but all will eventually decay.
By utilizing these natural forces of bio-degradation, people can reduce wastes and clean up some types of environmental contaminants. Through composting, we accelerate natural biodegradability and convert organic wastes to a valuable resource. Wastewater treatment also promotes natural forces of bio-degradation. In this case the goal is to break down organic matter so that it will not cause pollution problems when the water is discharged into the environment. Through bio remediation, microorganisms are used to clean up oil leakage and other types of organic pollution. Composting and bio remediation provide many opportunities for student research.

Immunological biotechnology represents a strategy for dissecting and manipulating molecular processes in health and disease and is crucial for the development and optimization of proteins for therapeutic intervention as well as diagnostics.
It is presently getting clear that the immune responses provide the development of many common disorders not traditionally viewed as immunologic, including metabolic, cardiovascular, cancer, and neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimer’s disease. Besides, there are direct implications of the immune system in infectious diseases (tuberculosis, malaria, hepatitis, pneumonia, dysentery, and helminth infestations) as well. Hence, research in the field of immunology is of prime importance for the advancements in the fields of modern medicine, biomedical research, and biotechnology.
