Recommended Conferences for Gene Patent

Gene Patent


As per available reports about 2 National symposiums are presently dedicated exclusively to Gene patent and about 10 Open Access Articles are being published on Gene patent.

Gene patent is a patent on an invention in the field of biology that by law allows the patent holder to exclude others from making, using, selling, or importing the protected invention for a limited period of time. The scope and reach of biological patents vary among jurisdictions and may include biological technology and products, genetically modified organisms and genetic material. The applicability of patents to substances and processes wholly or partially natural in origin is a subject of debate. The patenting of genes is a controversial issue in terms of bioethics. There are three main concerns voiced about genetic patenting. First, some believe it is unethical to patent genetic material because it treats life as a commodity. Second, some say that living materials occur naturally, and therefore cannot be patented. Finally, there is the fear that allowing patents on genetic material will undermine the dignity of people and other animals by subjecting their genes to ownership by other people. While some feel that a patent on living material is unethical, others believe that not allowing patents on biotechnological inventions would also be unethical.


OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conferences.

Scope and Importance:

Gene patents are among the most contentious, opaque and poorly understood aspects of modern IP. Inventions and products or services that hinge on knowledge of or direct use of the sequences that make up genetic material, typically DNA, or the proteins that genes encode, are becoming common and very important. Societal concerns about the appropriateness of allowing patenting of these components of living systems have also become prominent.

Market Analysis:

Patent expiry of major drugs is a foremost concern for pharmaceutical companies. Developing a new chemical entity (NCE) is more expensive and time consuming than developing a novel drug delivery technology. Therefore, in recent years many pharmaceutical companies have employed drug delivery technology as a life cycle management tool for some of their blockbuster drugs.
