USGENE: Enhanced coverage of bibliographic and sequence information

17. November 2009

Bibliographic and sequence specific data have been added to the USPTO Genetic Sequence Database (USGENE). As of publication date June 2007, USGENE sequence records include:

  • Priority application information (PRAI), including priority application numbers (PRN) and dates (PRD) 
  • U.S. related application information (RLI), including U.S. related application numbers (RLN) and dates (RLD)
  • Calculated patent expiration date (XPD) and patent term adjustment information (NTE, PTA) for issued patents
  • A concise one-line sequence description (DESC), for improved efficiency when reviewing search results

These data fields are all fully searchable and incorporated into the standard display formats BIB, BRIEF and ALL. In addition, the sequence description (DESC) field is part of the free-of-charge TRIAL display format, for even faster relevance checking of USGENE search results.

USGENE is the most comprehensive and timely collection of U.S. patent sequences. The database covers all available peptide and nucleic acid sequences from published applications and issued patents of the United States Patents and Trademark Office (USPTO). U.S. patent and published application sequence data are available within three days of publication by the USPTO.

The Database Summary Sheet is available online at:
