Broad files U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) Appellee Brief

In response to the Doudna-Charpentier team’s Appellant Brief, the Broad primarily argues in its Appellee Brief that the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) judgment was based on substantial evidence; and that the PTAB did not commit legal errors in its ruling and that it considered all relevant evidence. The Broad argues that there was not a reasonable expectation of success after the Jinek 2012 paper that the CRISPR-Cas9 system would have worked in eukaryotic cells.
