Gene patents have often resulted in companies having sole ownership of genetic testing for patented genes. On Jin the case of the Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, Inc., the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that human genes cannot be patented in the U.S.

because DNA is a "product of nature.". Koepsell pointed out several problems with these patented genes, which is the subject of his new book, Who Owns You. The Corporate Gold Rush to Patent Your Genes. It impedes scientific research, which requires that scientists replicate the gene they wish to study, he said.

If a scientist patents a gene, replicating the gene violates the patent. Functional Use. Finally, a third and emerging class of gene patents is that which claims the functional use of a gene. These patents are based on discovery of the role genes play in disease or other bodily and cellular functions or pathways, and claim methods and compositions of matter (typically called ‘small molecule’ drugs) used to up- or downregulate the by: "This book is a useful exposition of the difficulties that patents on human genes give rise to.
