USPTO Releases PatentIn 3.3

On August 24, 2004, the United States Patent and Trademark Office announced the release of PatentIn version 3.3. PatentIn 3.2 is is their authoring software for amino acid sequence listings and the new version includes:

Easier Sequence Skipping - A checkbox has been added to the sequence window to indicate whether a sequence should be skipped. The sequence will be skipped if the box is checked and all data related to the skipped sequence can remain in the PatentIn 3.3 project during the sequence listing generation.

Sequence Type Conversion - PatentIn 3.3 allows sequence type conversion between non-protein type sequences by clicking on the new AlterSeqType button on the sequence window.

Direct Access - From the main window to the database window instead of the journal window is provided in PatentIn 3.3. The system also provides direct access from any publication window to any other publication windows.

More Date Validations - For example: all dates entered into the sequence listing must be earlier than the current date; the Current Filing Date must be more recent than the Prior Application Filing Date; and, the Publication Date must be more recent than the Filing Date.
