  • Product Description

Statistics show that today some twenty percent of all human genes have been patented. Companies are investing millions of US dollars in researching and studying DNA and gene mutations, at the same time holding certain rights that place them in somewhat of a monopoly position. During the recent years patenting human genes has become a widely debated issue, with those who oppose such tendency stating that owning gene patents could actually stall research and significantly limit the availability of genetic information. It can be expected that this matter will be addressed in class action lawsuits in the years to come. In order to find out more about genes, their patents and the corresponding terms – read this book.
