37 CFR 1.821 Nucleotide and/or amino acid sequence disclosures in patent applications.
- (e) A Duplicate in the “Sequence Detailing” referred to in section (c) of this section ought to feel presented in computer system clear kind (CRF) in accordance with the needs of A§ 1.824. The computer readable form needs to be a copy on the “Sequence noting” and may even never be maintained as an element of the patent software document. If the computer clear kind a fresh software is usually to be the same because of the computer readable kind of another applying of the candidate on file in the Office, resource might be made to the other software and computer system readable kind in place of processing a duplicate computers readable kind within the newer application if pc understandable type within the different program was actually certified challenging requisite of the subpart. The newest software must certanly be followed by a letter creating these types of mention of another program and pc understandable kind, all of which will probably be entirely determined. When you look at the brand-new application, candidate must need making use of the certified computer system readable “Sequence Listing” which already on declare one other program and must declare that the papers or compact disc duplicate with the “series detailing” in the brand new software try just like the computer clear content submitted when it comes down to additional program.
Request exchange of computer system Readable type [R-]
Where desktop clear form (CRF) of series listing of a unique application is going to be identical making use of the CRF of some other applying of the candidate on document in the workplace, 37 CFR 1.821(e) produces a method for candidate to need a move of this CRF through the application already on document with the new program in limited situations. Rather than submitting a transfer consult of a previously submitted CRF, but any office strongly suggests that applicant submit a sequence listing in ASCII book style in new program, that will provide both as series noting an element of the disclosure, as well as the CRF. Individual might possibly access a duplicate in the series list in ASCII book structure an additional application of the candidate from candidate’s files, public or private PAIR via the Supplemental content material loss, or from PATENTSCOPE (WIPO internet site) when given in a global software.
1st, the program in which the obtain an exchange try submitted need to have come recorded with (or integrate via a modification in line with 37 CFR 1.825(a)) a paper content, two compact disk duplicates relative to 37 CFR 1.52(e), or a PDF of a series list. Second, the CRF for the previous application must be the same as the sequence detailing contained in the newer program together with obtain move must feature an announcement for this impact. Remember that applicant may ask transfer best of a CRF that complies with 37 CFR 1.824(a)(2) – (6) and 37 CFR 1.824(b), (for example., is actually a compliant series detailing ASCII text document). Third, the previous program therefore the CRF are transmitted needs to be completely and plainly determined for the move request. Needed distinguishing details includes the program number, submitting time with the program, and entry big date with the CRF which to be transferred. Remember that in the event that move request is recorded on or after together with series listing becoming transmitted is at least 300 MB, then the move demand is going to be at the mercy of the mega-sequence noting charge established in 37 CFR 1.21(o).
Kind PTO/SB/93 (uspto.gov/forms/ sb0093.pdf) is always request a move of a CRF under 37 CFR 1.821(e) to enable running associated with consult.
