Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Coupling of biomolecules or complex biological systems with electronic or optoelectronic devices is the general principle of various biosensors. The effective performance of biosensors requires transduction of the chemical signals generated by the biological components to electronic signals. New methods and new materials (functionalized nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, etc.) developed due to the tremendous recent success in nanotechnology pave the way for the novel possibilities to couple biomaterials and electronic transducers. The great importance of cooperative efforts in bioelectronics and nanotechnology, resulting in the formulation of the novel scientific direction named “bionanotechnology” cannot be overestimated. The recently born scientific direction has already attracted major interests of researches. Dimensional similarity of biomolecules and nano-objects allow their functional coupling, thus providing effective chemical/electronic signal transduction in the hybrid systems. The bionano-hybrid systems keep great promise for the development of novel biosensors, biofuel cells and biocomputing elements. Therefore, cooperative efforts of chemists, physicists and engineers from both science/technology areas (bioelectronics and nanotechnology) are needed to bring these promises into reality. These efforts should be directed to the basic science and to the technological development solving practical issues. The present special issue will outline the state-of-the-art in the area of nanotechnological advances in biosensors.
