This is great news indeed! I’ve also been surprised by how few people have even been aware of gene patenting. But what do you mean when you say “people didn’t even know that genes should be patented“? The point of the article is that they cannot be anymore…

@Baimee:  gotcha. 

When I was a teaching assistant for a college course where we taught human biology and ethics, we actually had a formal debate on gene patenting. The students had to do their own research and everything. Very few people knew about it ahead of time, but it seemed like almost everyone concluded that it sounds like a bad idea.
