Topical Overview:

Call for Papers - 
Nanobiology:  Research, Theory, and Current

Nanotechnology, as a general topic, covers a very wide array
of different disciplines and areas of research.  However, in
the realm of biological and biomolecular applications and 
developments, there are a number of current examples,
including some commercial applications, which are reshaping
the approach to which previously difficult, or even "unsolvable"
procedures can now be resolved, or greatly improved upon.

It is specifically in the realm of thoeretical, near term, or currently
available technologies, and how they are affected by application
of "nanobiological" processes, that will be reviewed in this
section of the journal.   By definition, a nanobiological 
process could be described, in this context, as any process
which utilizes the contrived manipulation of individual 
biomolecules or biomolecular structures to fullfill a desired task,
create an object, a material or application of a material,
or as an intermediate step in fullfilling a multistaged 
series of assembly or construction tasks involving biomolecular

This definition could also be expanded to include the methodologies
of visualiztion or detection of nanoscale activities in a 
biomolecular environment, or in the development of instrumentation
and processes related to these tasks.

Also, there are other tangential aspects of nanobiological
processes which are also relevant, and deserve attention.
Particularly in the areas of potential nanoscale computing
or information processing applications which may utilize
or incorporate biological components or processes, there has 
been considerable interest and research ativities.
