Granted US Arabidopsis thaliana Patents: Number of Sequences Referenced in Claims per Genome Segment

For the plots below, the Arabidopsis genome was divided into 300 kbp segments.  For granted patents that claim Arabidopsis gene sequences, the plots below show the number of sequences that match at least a 150 bp fragment of each 300 kbp genome segment.

In addition to initial patent filings, continuation and divisional applications are included in the count, so in some cases, the same sequence is counted multiple times. Each plot shows data for a single Arabidopsis chromosome.

Granted US Arabidopsis thaliana Patents: Percent Coverage by Patent Claims per Genome Segment

For the plots below, the Arabidopsis genome was divided into 300 kbp segments. For each 300 kbp segment, the percent coverage by claims in granted US patents was calculated. For example, if an entire 300 kbp segment was claimed by US patents, the plot would read 100% for that segment. The Y axes show the percent coverage, and the X-axes show the region (locus) of the Arabidopsis genome. Each plot shows data for a single Arabidopsis chromosome.

Granted US Arabidopsis thaliana Patents: Number of Patent Applications that Claim Arabidopsis Sequences per Genome Segment

For the plots below, the Arabidopsis genome was divided into 300 kbp segments. The plots below show the number of granted US patents that claim sequences that have at least a 150 bp match to a 300 kbp genome segment.

In addition to initial patent filings, continuation and divisional applications are included in the count, so the same sequence may be counted multiple times. Each plot shows data for a single Arabidopsis chromosome.
