🚨🚨🚨#CRISPR #Patent Interference No. 2 just came out; UC's "claims are unpatentable under 35 U.S.C. § 102(g)," i.e., CVC loses on priority. This is a legal determination that Zhang did it first. Of course, a whirlwind thread.… /1
First, how did we get here? There was, if you recall, an original interference between CVC (Doudna & Charpentier) and Broad (Zhang). That interference, decided in 2017, determined that the two parties' claims didn't conflict with one another. /2
In particular, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board declared that using CRISPR-Cas9 for genome editing in *eukaryotes* was a separately patentable invention over simply doing it in a generic system. There was, in the parlance of the patent office, "no interference in fact." /3

Worum geht es beim sog. #TRIPS #Waiver (#Patentfreigabe für #COVID19 #Impfstoffe) geht?

Ein kleiner Thread zur Einordnung.
1. Geistiges Eigentum kann in Form von Patenten geschützt werden. Dies geschieht zur Innovationsförderung, weil es den erfolgreich innovierenden Unternehmen ein zeitlich begrenztes Monopol garantiert. Im Welthandelsrecht ist das im #TRIPS-Abkommen festgelegt. 1/
2. Ein #Waiver ist das Aussetzen dieses Patentschutzes. Dies bedarf im WTO-Kontext der Einstimmigkeit, de-facto hängt es nach der Zustimmung der USA vor allem an der EU, UK und der Schweiz. Die Aussetzung in Anbetracht der pandemischen Lage beantragten Indien und Südafrika. 2/

Today, on #InternationalWomensDay I'd like to celebrate 10 amazing academics who've changed the fields of #STS #STEM and social sciences, and made significant impact on my own research. Follow them, come work with them, read and cite their work! #WomensDay #AcademicTwitter
Alondra Nelson @alondra is the first #STS scholar to have become a science advisor to the President of the United States. Prof. Nelson is recognized for her pioneering studies of #genetics #race and #technology and for years she's worked to support social sciences in the US.
Shoshana Zuboff @shoshanazuboff. Everyone's read The Age of Surveillance Capitalism. It is in Prof. Zuboff's terms that we all discuss #BigTech and the privacy crisis that challenges our democratic institutions. #SurveillanceCapitalism

A world record-breaking 261 tomato cultivars were exhibited at @NBGGlasnevin #TTTomFest19! The human race eats ½ its weight in #tomatoes annually. An important crop economically - preserving their valuable #genetic #diversity & #seed #democracy is vital to #future #foodsecurity🍅
1.This thread is about cordon or upright #tomato cultivars. The stunning colour of 'Indigo Rose' gave me the inspiration for the 1st #TotallyTerrificTomatoFestival in 2012. The first naturally-bred, high-anthocyanin tomato, #seed only became available to #gardeners in early 2012>
2.Rosada. The most delicious, disease-resistant, easy and productive variety of cherry/plum I've ever grown. Often bears 70 fruits on long trusses. No longer available as delisted by the politically powerful and greedy #Big4 #seed corporations when they couldn't buy the #patent!>

How are mRNA vaccines made? A chemist’s perspective. TL;DR A DNA plasmid is used as template for the in vitro transcription of DNA to mRNA which is then packaged in a lipid nanoparticle. But it is a bit complicated than that. (image @AFox_Perth… ) 1/35
I am chemist with a life-long interest in viruses and self-assembly, working in the nanomedicine @ARCCoEBionano field for over 10 years. More recently, our group has been synthesising short RNA (unpublished work) with my colleague #ozchem @Fahrenbachus @UNSWScience 2/35
So when I heard first about mRNA vaccines back in April I was fascinated. Since then I have also become part of group mentioned in… article by @AFox_Perth that is arguing the case for local mRNA (and other RNA + DNA products) capabilities in Australia 3/35

“I’m so grateful for #Gleevec. It keeps me alive. But the price tag ($10k/month) constantly hangs over my head.”
"When I'm on Enbrel, I don't have symptoms... But I also have to carry the fear knowing all this could be ripped away." Enbrel is priced at $6k per month.
First up: autoimmune drug Enbrel. Even though the primary patent on Enbrel expired in 2010, $AMGN has filed more than 50 additional patents on the drug to thwart cheaper competition, according to analysis by @IMAKglobal (1/)…

#Cow Urine, #science & #Ayurveda

"I drink cow urine daily for health purpose"
When @akshaykumar told this to @BearGrylls,
then the most expected reaction started taking place.

Some specific type of groups & people, who hv always been using the term Go-mutra/Cow urine to
offend #Indians,
started attacking & abusing not only #AkshayKumar but also his wife Twinkle @mrsfunnybones.

This #GANG always claim that use of Go-mutra/ Cow urine is #unscientific.
I hv always seen people (who support Go-mutra use) running away, in absence of knowledge.
I m going 2 share some #international #patent & #Researchpapers which support the #health benefits claims of #cow urine.

COW means DESI INDIAN COW & not the jersy cow.

I request @akshaykumar & @BearGrylls & other influencers plz to share it with the general mass to

Alright, every, time to take a break from our dystopian hellscape and get back to some fun stuff—the *just out* #CRISPR #patent interference decision. What does it mean? What happened? What happens next?

This is a Tweetstorm. Come along and ride with me: /1
First, a bit of history. As you may remember, we've been here before. Broad & UC had a previous interference that focused on CRISPR-Cas9 *eukaryotic* claims back in 2016/2017, affirmed by the CAFC in 2018. /2
In *that* interference, the PTAB declared there was no interference-in-fact between the parties' sets of claims. UC consequently went back to the PTO and, in a surprising decision, got some of its general (i.e., pro- and eukaryotic) system claims granted. /2

If someone in your life believes a coronavirus patent proves the COVID-19 virus was made in a lab, this is the thread for you. I go over the various patents that have been brandished around by conspiracymongers. THREAD!

#COVID19 #Patent #COVIDー19
The Pirbright Institute patent: it’s actually for a virus called IBV, a type of coronavirus that causes bronchitis in birds. It’s not for SARS-CoV-2. (US10130701B2, EP3172319A1 and EP3172319B1.)
The University of North Carolina patent: it’s actually for a coronavirus that causes gastroenteritis in pigs. It’s not for SARS-CoV-2. (US7279327B2 and WO 02/086068 A2.)

India achieved a remarkable leap in the field of tele communication after the engineer - genius, Mr. #SamPitroda. The renowned firm, #C - dot was founded under his initiative. For it, he frequently stepped in & out the offices of Ms.Indira Gandhi as well as Rajiv Gandhi.
When C - Dot was officially inaugurated, Rajiv Gandhi was at PM's office. Sam pitroda was the father of Indian tele communication & under whose #patent, Rajiv Gandhi became patron of Indian information technology revolution. This is just as, pretending Modi having 56'' by placing
the Indian army in front. So, this is the hard reality to be made out!, otherwise, we would be forced to bear idiots like Padmaja Venugopal, who may boast that, Rajiv Gandhi had made his own mobile phone long before #MartinCooper made an attempt.....

Alright everyone! It's been a long time, but here's a tweetstorm on the 2d oral argument in the #CRISPR #patent case between the Broad Institute and U.C.—it just concluded minutes ago. /1
For those who have been following this second round, this second interference concerns several of Broad's patents—and UC patents—issued *after* the first interference. Here's the docket:… it's Interference No. 106,115 /2
The core of this 2d interference concerns who can claim priority to using a *single guide RNA* in a generic system, i.e., one piece of RNA for both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. /3
