Court says human genes cannot be patented
|The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that companies cannot patent parts of naturally-occurring human genes, a decision with the potential to profoundly affect the emerging and lucrative medical and biotechnology industries.|
Now does the ability to patent those parts of the human genome that are not naturally-occurring entitle them to ownership of the entire genome when the preponderance of the genome is naturally-occurring?
I would think not.
