Abstract: Nanobiotechnology is an emerging field of applied biological science and nanotechnology. For application of nanotechnology in medical, agriculture, and environmental fields, it is important to find more reliable and ecofriendly methods for synthesis of nanoparticles. Synthesis of nanoparticles (NPs) is done by various physical and chemical methods but the biological methods are relatively simple, cost-effective, non-toxic, and environmental friendly methods. Extract of Brassica genus vegetables and plants have been used as reducing agent for the environmental friendly synthesis of silver and gold nanoparticles, so the present review focuses on the synthesis of nanoparticles with special emphasis on the silver and gold nanoparticles by using plants of genus Brassica and their applications in various fields.
