By Tai Hyun Park

The “bioelectronic nose”, the machine which has an identical functionality to the human scent sensing process, should be learned through combining the olfactory cells or receptors with nanotechnology. within the final 20 years, a lot has been realized concerning the odor sensing mechanism in organic structures. With wisdom in regards to the organic olfactory procedure and the suggestions for the expression of organic receptor proteins, we can make the most of organic fabrics and structures to imitate the organic olfactory method. as well as the advances in organic and biotechnological sector, nanotechnology has advanced to a superb measure. The bioelectronic nostril is an efficient instance of the mixing of biotechnology and nanotechnology.

The objective of this publication is to supply the reader with an idea, easy sciences, basic applied sciences, functions, and views of the bioelectronic nostril.

The hedonistic pleasure derived from eating and drinking is also heavily reliant on the sense of smell. Olfaction is an important tool used in so many facets of animal life and is often the deciding factor between surviving an encounter with a predator, passing on genes to offspring and finding a source of food.
