Patent in genetic technology
by Chen Jinjin, Li Raojuan
International Journal of Liability and Scientific Enquiry (IJLSE), Vol. 1, No. 4, 2008

Abstract: Genetic technology, as a newly emerging technology, has brought a profound impact on the world. The achievement of genetic technology necessitates legal protection. Patent law protection will greatly promote science and genetic economy development. However, patent law protection also raises numerous questions and disputes. Starting from the concept of gene, this paper analyses the gene sequence, the new transgenosis varieties of the animals and plants and the gene methods. The paper then provides an overview of the Chinese legal system on the protection of genetic technology, and puts forward suggestions to fill the gap in the lacuna created by the absence of specific relevant laws in China.
