About this book
Since 2010, the Inter-University Chair in Law and the Human Genome has been involved in a EU 7th Framework Programme funded project called SYBHEL, leading work package 5. Its aim is to face the issues related to Synthetic Biology and Intellectual Property Rights. During the period since its initiation, two international workshops devoted to this topic have been organized, collecting a number of directly-related, high-level unpublished papers redacted by some of the most prominent experts in this field. Thus, we considered that it would be extremely important and interesting to have all the work gathered in a unique volume, which would be the first book exclusively dedicated to the analysis of the implications of Synbio may and the currently existing intellectual property rights system.
