Systems Biology Project
A new biological paradigm, Systems Biology, has emerged with the completion of the Human Genome Project. The Human Genome Project has advanced the view that biological information operates on multiple hierarchical levels and is processed in complex networks. A new hierarchical framework for biological knowledge is being constructed to understand the relationships between the various levels of biological information. As the drug discovery and development paradigm transitions into this information space, the focus of intellectual property will also shift to the patenting of systems-based information. This project involves the development of a framework for characterizing systems based knowledge to understand the complexities arising from the assignment of intellectual property rights to biological information.
