In an opinion delivered by Justice Thomas, the Court held by a vote of 9-0 that a naturally occurring DNA segment is not patentable merely because it has been isolated, but that “complementary” DNA, which is synthetic and does not occur in nature, is patent-eligible. Justice Scalia filed an opinion concurring in part and in the judgment.
To discuss the case, we have Gregory Dolin, who is Associate Professor and Co-Director of the Center for Medicine and Law at the University of Baltimore School of Law.
