The biological approach to nanotechnology - biomimetic nanotechnology- is a new field in the area of nanostructuring and specially nonorobotic. Mimicking biology to extract useful strategies, needs good knowledge of its exquisite dynamic (evolutionary nonlinear dynamic) which arises from a vast network of molecular interactions and structure-function hierarchical solidity from small scales (nano) to large scales (macro). In this sense the identification of self-assembly processes in living systems and their self-organized dynamical states with the knowledge about their sensitivity and selectivity have paved the way for developing new strategies for controlling the dynamic of self-assembled structures in nanoscale. Hence by mimicking the way in which biological structural components are built, the process of pattern formation or self-assembly can be directed in a desired form.
