The private sector is major contributor to the growth of bioscience in the country. This sector sponsors most of the biotech research (industrial research) and therefore a large number of women biotechnologists are also hired by the private biotech companies.

This situation has therefore resulted in the present sociological study offering interesting research results. Unlike women scientists who have specialized in other science subjects and who happen to work and carry out research work in government- scientific institutions, women biotechnologists working in the private sector biotech companies in Bangalore city come out as a distinctively privileged category.

A great number of women scientists are joining the biotech sector compared to other natural sciences. The fact that women join biological sciences in greater numbers than physical sciences is a well documented fact the world over. However this sector is also producing a large number of women science entrepreneurs who are achieving phenomenal success in their endeavors and putting this field and Bangalore on the world map.
