Naturally occurring human gene sequences cannot be patented but artificially copied and replicated DNA can be, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Thursday.

"A naturally occurring DNA segment is a product of nature and not patent eligible merely because it has been isolated but cDNA is patent eligible because it is not naturally occurring," the court ruled.
