Living organisms possess various Nature’s secrets that are not completely understood by the human beings. They have inherent capacity to cope up with several types of stresses. In Nature, potential of living organisms like microbes and plants to synthesize nanoparticles not even in lab but also in their natural environment seems to be very useful for human beings. These microbes and plants are utilized for the synthesis of ecofriendly and stable nanoparticles in laboratory and in industries. These are natural nanofactories. As the potential of silver and gold nanoparticles in medical sciences is well known. This is a demanding area of research. With the advancement of technology, we need cheap, ecofriendly and size controlled nanoparticles.
