Survey of Genome Science Corporations
This report is based on telephone, electronic, and letter solicitations of corporate firms and private research groups engaged in genome research as part of a long-term commercialization strategy. I contacted the firms and research centers by letter, phone, fax, or electronic mail and asked for any publicly available information to be sent to me. I indicated that I would be preparing a precis of the information for OTA, as background and perhaps to result in text boxes for the forthcoming report on DNA patenting. I also indicated that another purpose of the contact was to provide commercial firms - especially those likely to be affected directly by DNA patent policies - an opportunity to give OTA input, including suggestions for policy options, comments on possible policy options already under discussion, observations about the NIH patent application, and perspectives on other recent historical events.
