The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is conducting a free training session for PatentIn 3.3 on Friday, March 24, 2006 at the USPTO's new headquarters in the Madison West Building at 600 Dulany Street, Alexandria, Virginia. The session will run from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM, with a one-hour lunch break from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM.

PatentIn is a computer program designed to expedite the preparation of patent applications containing nucleic acid and amino acid sequences by generating sequence listings that comply with all format requirements specified in the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Standard ST.25 and the related U.S. final rule, "Requirements for Patent Applications Containing Nucleotide Sequence and/or Amino Acid Disclosures," 37 CFR §§1.821 - 1.825 effective July 1, 1998.

Robert Wax, Primary Examiner in Art Unit 1653, former Project Manager of PatentIn, and one of the USPTO's sequence rule experts will present the following materials:

  • Overview of molecular biology
  • Overview of the sequence rules
  • Hands-on authoring of several sequence listings varying in complexity

Questions are welcome throughout the training and Mr. Wax will be available after class to assist customers with their sequence listings.
