There is nothing to consider. The Gene already exists and anything thereafter is considered a repair. Any monies spent by the government in research must also be considered.

The supreme court must remove any member representing or being a member of the ALEC who may introduce or make any decision on the case or speaking on behalf of the government

How is it even possible to patent something you didn't even create?! Can I patent sunlight and charge people for its use just because I'm the first one to send in a patent?
