The introduction of nano-bio technology to electronics
Nano-bio technology has become of interest to applied physics researchers, and there have been many requests to begin research. However, until now, bio-technical terms and biology's common sense were barriers. In this commentary, we focus on proteins, which are the most widely studied biomolecules, with the aim of removing the barriers between biology and applied physics researchers by describing fundamental and general biology knowledge. The first half outlines the basic knowledge necessary for the application of nanobio technology to electronics, from genes to protein preparation, purification, characterization, analysis, and adsorption to substrates. In the latter half, some experimental examples and applications, which are the starting points for nanobio technology, are described.
