The study on green synthesis methods and on its potential applications for the mankind are in trend over 10 or more decades in the field of bioscience. A significant number of works have been done on the synthesis of nanoparticles by a microorganism which clearly shows the reliability of this method. Microbes can be used for synthesis process at much lower cost and in an environment-friendly approach. Among microbes, fungi can be mass grown in vitro, and they demonstrate an easy downstream processing for nanoparticles. Biosynthesized nanoparticles are the by-product of their resistance mechanism of the metal concerned, in different sizes and shapes. Also, presently, there are various methods of characterizing the metal nanoparticles. In this review, we will analyze aspects of mycosynthesis of silver and gold nanoparticles and their different characterization techniques. We are intended to give a clear picture of the importance and downside of this method.
