Patent applications for bulk sequences from other dicots
The following patent documents demonstrate attempts to patent large groups of sequences from other dicots. These applications use claim language such that a successful claim would almost certainly cover large numbers of sequences from other dicots, and perhaps also some from Arabidopsis. It is therefore useful to investigate briefly the claim contents of such applications – particularly since many of these applications are more recent than those of Paradigm Genetics, and, unlike the applications of Paradigm, appear to be in the process of active patenting efforts by the respective companies.
The claims of the Agrigenesis patent below refer to sequences derived from Eucalyptus grandis and Pinus radiata:
