I was wrong. Hooray!

Over three years ago I made a cynical prediction that the Supreme Court would uphold human gene patents.  I'm happy to report that I was wrong.  The court's decision is shockingly sensible: naturally occurring genes are not patentable.  Synthetic genes with novel sequences that do not occur in nature are.  The Washington Post has a nice summary.
