Virus Nanotechnology

Viral nanotechnology is the use of viruses as a source of nanoparticles for biomedical purposes. The virus is composed of a genome and a capsid. Some viruses have envelopes. Most virus capsids have a diameter of 20500 nm. Due to its nanometer size, the virus was considered to be naturally occurring nanoparticles. Viral nanoparticles were the subject of the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Viruses can be thought of as pre-made nanoparticles. Many different viruses have been studied for different uses of nanotechnology. For example, mammalian viruses have been developed as vectors for gene delivery, and bacteriophage and plant viruses have been used for drug delivery and imaging, vaccine and immunotherapy interventions.
