Nanobiotechnology is an interdisciplinary field which cannot be ignored at any point in the biotech industrial sector. It has contributed more importance in converting research into applications, especially drug delivery system and drug discovery process.
Surveillance report in the recent past shows that several consumer products with the application of nanotechnology are not yet found majorly in biotechnological products.
More research is require to unleash nano applications in biological sciences, and hence there is less contribution by the Indian industry who have so far lead the biotech market.
Product research in nanobiotechnology is carried by very few Indian lifescience companies which is alarming signal to all their comrades.
