Bacteriophages are too cool
They're like biological nanobots (and we're actually going to utilize them for that purpose IRL!)

They're viruses that kill bacteria and happen to be helpful to humans

Are there existing research attempting at biomimicry for designing artificial nanobots?

Yes, actually, though we're still using phages
Engineering Bacteria to Produce Pure Phage-like Particles for Gene Delivery

I mean, why make fully artificial nanobots for the task when nature already designed them for us?

Since the galaxy is probably very ancient, at least one of those stars had or has a planet teeming with life. 2000 trillion stars kinds of ups the statistical odds of that happening.
