The Supreme Court Nixes Claims to Isolated Genomic DNA

  • 06.13.13
  • Jorge A. Goldstein, Ph.D. and Robert W. Esmond, Ph.D.

This decision rendered invalid patent claims owned by Myriad Genetics as well as thousands of patent claims of others to such molecules. However, Myriad’s claims to complementary DNA (cDNA) molecules were held to be valid.
