Fouzia Bibi, Amjid Khan, Irum Iqrar, Mehwish Iqbal and Zabta Khan Shinwari

Nanobiotechnology plays an important part in today's medical diagnosis and treatment. Nanoparticles which can be biosynthesized have characteristics such as biological compatibility the cost-effectiveness and friendly to the environment, resulting in potential candidates for various biomedical and biotechnology applications. The significance of silver nanoparticles is in their unique physiochemical, antimicrobial, and anticancer characteristics, as well as their wide variety of applications in fields such as wound care management, pharmaceuticals, electronics, biomedicine, textiles, cosmetics, therapeutics, photonics, and agriculture. Silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) can be synthesized through various methods including chemical, physical, and biological techniques. Biogenic silver nanoparticle precursors with distinct geometry and surface qualities can be synthesized by plants, bacteria, and fungi. This review explored the properties of biogenic Ag NPs and their potential as agents with anticancer, antibacterial, and antifungal properties
