My article on the top five biotechnology blogs is up at Biotech360. Hope I don’t get too much hatemail over the blogs I didn’t mention; with a limit of five blogs I tried to identify one representative blog for policy, research, IP, marketing, and general innovation.
India’s biotechnology industry has the potential to become a major driver of the country’s economy, but is challenged by one vital omission: patent protection. While current patent laws support a strong Indian generic industry, they also impede foreign investment. Without foreign investment India loses trading opportunities, and without a capacity to produce branded drugs India loses the opportunity to capture the full profit potential of its biotechnology industry.
