When investigating patent data for a protein family

Step-by-step guide

  1. Open the patent landscape tool.
  2. Make a selection of patents and patented sequences
  3. Underneath the selection overview panel, on the right side of the screen, click on phylogenetic tree.
  4. A window will appear with options to add aligned proteins to place patents in context with the superfamily.
  5. Click open, the phylogenetic tree wil be generated and shown in the phylogenetic tree viewer.
    1. Claimed proteins will be shown in red
    2. Mentioned protein will be shown in green
    3. Subfamily templates, if added, are shown in dark green
