Abstract: Nanotechnology is a field that is mushrooming, making an impact in all spheres of human life. Nanobiotechnology represents an economic alternative for chemical and physical methods of nanoparticles formation. Presently available literature revealed that the NP synthesis using marine plants, microrganisms and algae as source has been unexplored and underexploited. The development of green processes for the synthesis of NP is evolving into an important branch of nanotechnology. It has many advantages such as, ease with which the process can be scaled up, economic viability, etc. Presently, the researchers are looking into the development of cost-effective procedures for producing reproducible, stable and biocompatible AgNPs and AuNPs. Antibiotic resistance is the world’s major public healthcare problem. AgNPs and AuNPs particles play a vital role in nanobiotechnology as biomedicine against Drug-resistant bacteria.
