Virus-like particles are virus-derived structures made up of one or more different molecules with the ability to self-assemble, mimicking the form and size of a virus particle but lacking the genetic material so they are not capable of infecting the host cell.

Virus-like particles are supramolecular complexes formed by viral proteins that self-assemble into capsids resembling real viruses, albeit non-infectious due to the lack of viral genome packaged within the particle.

Virus-like particles are multisubunit self-assembly-competent protein structures with identical or highly related overall structure to their corresponding native viruses.

It is the average number of times the nanotechnology articles published within a year have been cited in the Journal Citation Reports.
The total number of times all records have been cited: This field displays the total number of citations to all of the nanotechnology-related articles in the set of search results.
This field displays the h-index count and is based on a list of publications ranked in descending order by the Times Cited count. The h-index is the number of the item/publication in the h rank of the mentioned ranking that has at least "h" citations. For example, an h-index of 20 means 20 items have 20 citations or more. This metric is useful because it discounts the disproportionate weight of highly cited papers or papers that have not yet been cited.

The indicator shows the number of nanotechnology granted patents in USPTO. According to ISO/TS 18110 (First Edition 2015-08-15), the definition of nanotechnology patents is “patents that include at least one claim related to nanotechnology or patents classified with an IPC classification code related to nanotechnology such as B82.
