Gene patenting..

I love, love, love this woman.

Beyond the fact that she’s a woman in science, that she worked hard with little support or recognition, until she found the BRCA gene mutation that is an indicator of a strong possibility for developing breast cancer — she’s cheering the fact that the Supreme Court decided that the genes themselves could not be patented.  SO, many other companies can develop their own tests.
