    (i)Have a continuous existence;
    (ii)Exist independent of the control of the depositor;
    (iii)Possess the staff and facilities sufficient to examine the viability of a deposit and store the deposit in a manner which ensures that it is kept viable and uncontaminated;
    (iv)Provide for sufficient safety measures to minimize the risk of losing biological material deposited with it;
    (v)Be impartial and objective;
    (vi)Furnish samples of the deposited material in an expeditious and proper manner; and
    (vii)Promptly notify depositors of its inability to furnish samples, and the reasons why.


  3. 2434Examination of Patent Applications Claiming Large Numbers of Nucleotide Sequences

    Nucleotide sequences encoding different proteins are structurally distinct chemical compounds and are unrelated to one another. These sequences are thus deemed to normally constitute independent and distinct inventions within the meaning of 35 U.S.C. 121. Absent evidence to the contrary, each such nucleotide sequence is presumed to represent an independent and distinct invention, subject to a restriction requirement pursuant to 35 U.S.C. 121 and 37 CFR 1.141.

    applicants may petition pursuant to 37 CFR 1.181 for examination of additional nucleotide sequences by providing evidence that the different nucleotide sequences do not cover independent and distinct inventions.
