What the actual f*ck??? http://abcnews.go.co...99#.Ubocdpx8Fuk
These people had genes in the genome patented???? SImply because they discovered them? And it took this long and had to go to the supreme court to get overturned? Jesus, why not just patent like the entire breast. No one else has done it yet, so it's fair game, right? Ugh. Imagine how far N research would have been set back if our particular HLA gene had been patented. We'd most likely still know next to nothing about how our conditions arise. This is why we can't have nice things. Or rather why we can't have healthy people in an age of unparalleled scientific achievement.
