Historical information available on Taq polymerase findings at the University of Cincinnati

Cincinnati -- Background information and expert commentary concerning the Taq polymerase patent ruling is available from the University of Cincinnati department of biological sciences.

U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker ruled Tuesday that the 1990 patent involving Taq polymerase was issued, in part, on misleading information and false claims by scientists with Cetus Corporation. The ruling supported a challenge by Promega Corporation against Hoffman-La Roche which purchased the Taq patents for $300 million in 1991.

Judge Walker cited previous discoveries by other laboratories, including the laboratory of Professor John Trela in the University of Cincinnati department of biological sciences, as the basis for the ruling.
