[requires 'free' registration]

"Columbia University is coming under increasing legal attack from biotechnology companies, which accuse it of illegally trying to extend the life of a patent that has brought the institution hundreds of millions in revenue."

"The suits say Columbia abused the patent system by obtaining a new patent covering the same invention that an expired patent had covered. The suits seek to invalidate the new patent and establish that the companies do not owe any more money to Columbia."

"When universities license discoveries made by scientists to companies for commercialization, the whims of the marketplace determine the results. As with anything else in business, the odds of scoring a major financial hit are slight, but the payoff can be exceedingly large. This is especially true for the life sciences, where discoveries and patents in medicine and biology continue to produce the lion's share of revenues for universities and research institutions. Life science patents also contributed the most to overall research strength at US universities last year, outpacing discoveries in information technology and other fields."

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
