- b Box Sequence; Hand Delivery of Sequence Listings and Computer Readable Forms
- c Additional Miscellaneous Requirements
- d Examination 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.

2424.01 → Biological Material That Is Known and Readily Available to the Public
2424 → Nucleotide and/or Amino Acid Sequence Disclosures in Patent Disclosure in Patent Applications
2406.03 → Possible Loss of U.S. Filing Date in Other Countries
caution that in many countries the deposit must be made before the filing date of the priority application in order to obtain foreign priority rights.
2403.02 → Plant Material
A deposit is not necessary for the grant of a plant patent under the provisions of 35 U.S.C. 161- 164. As with other biological material deposited for purposes of patents for inventions under 35 U.S.C. 101, the deposit of plant material together with the written specification must enable those skilled in the art to make and use the claimed invention, in accordance with the requirements of 35 U.S.C. 112.
2422.05 → Reference to Previously Filed Identical Computer Readable Form; Continuing or Dericatiove Applications; Request for Transfer of Computer Readable Form
