Ask Us Anything About GMOs!

If the US Federal Government has classified Genetically Engineered food products as Substantially Equivalent to common food product currently in the market and thus declined to regulate them, how can they be patented? I thought patents were reserved for inventions or something that was unique and proprietary and required protection from rampant exploitation? Besides, how can patent natural products that come from nature?
