It's getting to be a mess

From what I've heard the patent office is issuing patents on genes. Companies are getting patents on a particular part of the human genome, which means that if a researcher decides to study a disease, such as diabetes, he may have to pay royalties to the company that owns that patent. It is stopping others from researching in areas that have been issued a patent. A little common sense is in order.
