Abstract

Despite the long-held belief of positive effect of patenting on public research and commercialization of science, scholars now assert its detrimental impacts on follow-on innovation. Using human gene patents, our study contributes to literature on patent design and effects of patents on public research while informing policy and patenting strategies.
