Unit 5.1 DB: Gene Patents

Unit 5.1 DB: Gene Patents

 Discuss whether you support or oppose the Supreme Court ruling on gene patents in the 2013 case: ASSOCIATION FOR MOLECULAR PATHOLOGY ET AL vs MYRIAD GENETICS, INC., ET AL.  In short they ruled, that “A naturally occurring DNA segment is a product of nature and not patent eligible merely because it has been isolated, but cDNA is patent eligible because it is not naturally occurring”.  Choose a side and support your position with research.
