Gena PatentAlthough a bit of trepidation is likely in order (no matter on what end of the spectrum you tend to fall), I look forward to reading what the SCOTUS has to say when the esteemed Justices opine on gene patents. Particularly since Myriad presents a bit of a chicken-and-egg question -- that is thus perhaps not scientifically, definitively solvable -- policy considerations will probably weigh heavily in their ultimate determination. Which also makes one wonder to what extent the Court's new political makeup will affect the case's outcome.http://www.GeneralPatent.com/blog/
