Jensen, MIT Title: An Empirical Examination of the Intellectual Property Landscape of the Human GenomeKyle Jensen is a graduate student at MIT investigating the role that IP strategy plays in innovation and technology commercialization for "genomic" inventions. As a part of this, his group has developed an IP map of the human genome. That is, we've managed to determine what fraction of human genes are patented by whom, and to map these patents onto the genome.Biography: Kyle L. Jensen: kljensen@mitBackSpeakers: Ellen Murphy and Adrienne Shanler, Wyeth Title: Demystifying BLAST Searches, Parsers and Data PresentationThe patent attorneys did not want to see the raw alignment data from similarity searches and wanted a concise summary. The answer was a spreadsheet. This presentation will cover similarity searching using BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool), integration of data and its presentation using two methods. First is the use of in-house resources at Wyeth and covers the development of the algorithms and parsers which cope with the alignments, pull information from sequence records, search Micropatent for patent families, and export the data as a spreadsheet. Second will be a practical overview of the process using CAS Registry, DGENE and PCTGEN databases, integration of the data from the three databases, and conversion into a comma delimited file for import into an Excel spreadsheet. Note: This is a followup to Kenneth Hoppe’s (Pfizer) talk on “Coping with Multiple Biosequence Patent Databases: a Case Study” given at the 2003 PIUG NE Workshop in which he discussed Pfizer’s proprietary software which everyone who did BLAST searching wanted. This talk will include information on development of such software.Biography:Ellen Murphy: MurphyE3@wyeth.com Adrienne Shanler: ShanleA@wyeth.comBackSpeaker: Robert Austin, FIZ Karlsruhe Title: A Fist Full of Sequences - The Who, When, Why and What of Biosequence Patent LiteratureAn increasing number of patent applications continue to be published with long lists of biosequences. What is the significance of this rapidly expanding body of data? What proportion of these applications have been granted, in which countries and to which organizations? Who owns the intellectual property and what do they use it for? By applying STN's suite of patent analysis tools to relevant databases the author will present a retrospective study of biosequence patenting trends, and provide a unique perspective on answers to these and other related questions.Biography: Robert Austin: robert.austin@fiz-k.comBackSpeaker: Alan Engel, Paterra Title: Spectators along the road to patent classification nirvanaPapers of the Trilateral Working Group on Classification suggest that the future of patent classification will grow out of the European Classification (ECLA) system in conjunction with the USPTO’s First Place Priority Rule. IPC-2006 can be viewed as one step down the road to this nirvana. Most patent information users are confined to spectator roles. Given that we aren’t allowed on the road itself, how do we spectators locate it, follow it, and apply it to our daily search tasks? This presentation will start with an overview of free Internet resources for tracking official progress in patent classification. It will then move on to free Internet-workable examples for better understanding classification schedules and rules.Biography: Alan Engel: aengel@paterra.comBackSpeaker: Donald Walter, Ph.D., Thomson Scientific Title: IPCs, Benefits and Limitations of Searching ThemHow to search them - several ways of finding the right ones to search: A) Using the hierarchy at WIPO.org, B) Using PATIPC / STN, the IPC thesaurus on Delphion, etc., C) Statistical tricks (my favorite). Summarize the changes announced by WIPO. Summarize how Derwent and the Thomson Scientific systems (Delphion and Micropatent) are planning on adapting to the WIPO changes.Biography: Don Walter: Don.Walter@Thomson.comBackSpeaker: Jim Brown, IFI/Wolters Kluwer Health Title: US Published Applications And The Companies To Which They Are (Not) AssignedThe USPTO began publishing applications in 2001. This presentation will discuss the history of the US published applications (PGPs), how these documents are presented in various databases and the impact on searching the PGP's. Included in the presentation will be suggested approaches for locating the most complete and comprehensive PGP assignment information.Biography: Jim Brown: JBrown@IFIClaims.comBackSpeaker: Peter J. Butch, Synnestvedt & Lechner LLP Title: Attorneys and Search ReportsHe will speak on how a patent attorney uses the search report from the searcher to assist in analyzing claims for patentability, reexamination, validity, infringement, etc. In other words what does an attorney look for in the search report that will make his or her job easier. What format (like tables), visualization tools, graphs, charts, and other tools or features would help the attorney. Since most patent searchers are not attorneys (or patent agents, although some are) they cannot render a legal opinion, but other than that, what would an attorney like to see in the search report. Since an attorney's time is so limited, how much interaction with the searcher do patent attorney's prefer.Biography: Peter J. Butch: pbutch@synnlech.comBackSpeaker: Neal K. Feivelson, Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP Title: Patent Searching in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science ArtsThis presentation will address some of the unique issues of patent and prior art searching in the electrical engineering and computer science arts. Along with specialized techniques for searching in these arts, the presentation will address the tailoring of search methodologies to specific types of projects. An overview of current Federal Circuit patent law will lay the groundwork for recommendations on determining the scope of the disclosure of a given reference and how such reference pertains to a given type of searching project.Biography: Neal K. Feivelson: nfeivelson@willkie.com BackSpeaker: Anthony J. Trippe, Chemical Abstracts Service Title: "The importance of being Ernest": Why Gathering and Cleaning All the Relevant Data Matters for Patent AnalysisMore and more in the process of making critical business decisions, technical patent and non-patent information is used as a means to determine competitive position and formulate company strategy on technical subjects. The importance of having all the relevant data available for analysis and having that data normalized so accurate statistics can be generated cannot be overstated. The purpose of this talk will be to examine the requirements for ensuring that, as much as possible, all of the pertinent data, whether from patent or non-patent sources, has been gathered. Further, this presentation will examine the pitfalls of performing an analysis on an incomplete data set or on a collection which has not been cleaned and normalized. Specific examples from the author's personal experience will be shared along with a detailed case-study which illustrates a step-by-step method for conducting this type of work.Biography: Anthony J.
