Visitor - Dave: Glad you put biotechnology first in your list of three. Biotech ETF has soared last several years, where nanotech ETF disappeared, and is no longer traded. Bottom line: Buy biotech, ignore nanotech. I especially like biotech ETF based on the biotech index because it is capitalization weighted, and thus has a winner's bias.
