More Info

Patent applications are included where they cover: an isolated polynucleotide sequence from a plant; the insertion of a polynucleotide molecule into or the rearrangement of genetic material within a plant or plant part; methods of producing a plant or plant part using somatic cell fusion; new genetically modified plants; theproduction of heterologous proteins, oils or other substances using recombinant DNA technology.

Each entry includes application number, assignee name, filing and publication dates, subject of the application, and a synopsis of the claims made in the application document.

Not all patent applications disclose an assignee. Therefore company or institution names within [ ] are the putative assignees, based on our best assessment of available data.
