    I've patented all my genes, even the ones other people have.

    Use of patents with Human Genes

    The ACLU and the patent foundation said Myriad's refusal to license the patents broadly has meant that women who fear they may be at risk of breast or ovarian cancers are prevented from having anyone but Myriad look at the genes in question.

    I agree. A woman might not even get a diagnosis if there is a patent with one particular company that she can't afford to pay.
