Harvard And MIT Wins Battle Over CRISPR Patent

The court ruling on the case of the CRISPR patent has been out and is in favor of Harvard and MIT. Read to know more about the side of the University of California in this battle.

Universities Are Arguing Over Genome Editing Technology, But What Does The Law Have to Say About It?

Three major universities are now engaged in a patent lawsuit to protect their rights to use genome editing technology called CRISPR-Cas9. The fallout will have far more impact than the simple settling of ownership and intellectual property rights, however; experts believe that CRISPR-Cas9 may be the most efficient route toward a ticking off items on a laundry list of amazing biotechnological discoveries.

A New Form of College Rivalry: Genetic Engineering Patents

College rivalries are nothing new. Some even reach legendary proportions. USC vs. Notre Dame, Alabama vs. Auburn, Army vs. Navy. They make for great football. Not so much when it comes to technological rights, as we're discovering in the ongoing battle between UC Berkeley and MIT, as they wrestle over the patent for a machine that just might revolutionize genetic engineering.
