Companies developing new drugs, modified crops, environmentally friendly products, and the like will need the expertise of biological scientists. The growth of the biotechnology industry will create many new opportunities for biologists. The DOL also predicts that even companies not solely involved in biotechnology will be increasingly using biotechnology developments and techniques in their businesses. This should create more job opportunities for biological scientists in a variety of industries. Private industry will need biologists to work in sales, marketing, and research management.
