New book connects theory with real-life applications

ISBN: 9781108452908

Bionanotechnology: Concepts and Applications is a new book from Cambridge University Press by Dr. Ljiljana Fruk, University of Cambridge and Antonina Kerbs, Miltenyi Biotec B.V. & Co. KG.

Bionanotechnology: Concepts and Applications is the first ever textbook for students which connects theory with real-life applications, that gives students comprehensive knowledge of all the key concepts in bionanotechnology.

By bridging the interdisciplinary gap from which bionanotechnology emerged, it provides a systematic introduction to the subject, accessible to students from a wide variety of backgrounds. Topics range from nanomaterial preparation, properties and biofunctionalisation, and analytical methods used in bionanotechnology, to bioinspired and DNA nanotechnology, and applications in biosensing, medicine and tissue engineering. Throughout the book, features such as 'Back to basics' and 'Research report' boxes enable students to build a strong theoretical knowledge and to link this to practical applications and up-to-date research. With over 200 detailed, full-colour illustrations and more than 100 end-of-chapter problems, this is an essential guide to bionanotechnology for any student studying this exciting, fast-developing and interdisciplinary field.
