Issue Report: Gene patents


Geoffrey M. Karny. “In Defense of Gene Patenting.” Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News. April 1, 2007: “The invention must be described in a manner to enable other people skilled in that technology to make and use it. This permits others in the field to build on the new knowledge. Finally, the invention must be clearly claimed so that the public knows the scope of the limited property right.”
