INFORMATION FROM THE EPO
Notice from the European Patent Office dated 15 May 1992 concerning the computer program PatentIn
The European Patent Office has developed, in close cooperation with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, a computer program, called PatentIn, that facilitates compliance with the present recommendation (Notice from the European Patent Office dated 15 November 1989, Supplement to OJ EPO 12/1989) and future requirements concerning the standardised representation of nucleotide and amino acid sequences in European patent applications.
The PatentIn program is available from the EPO on a 3.5" diskette free of charge. It may be run on IBM PC XT, AT, PS/2 and compatible systems having hard-disk drives. While the PatentIn program is not the sole means for establishing standardised sequence listings, it is especially designed to enable compliance with the recommended and soon prescribed (probably as from 1 January 1993) standard.
Requests for the PatentIn program and supporting material should be addressed in writing to
European Patent Office
