The written description requirement “serves a teaching function, as a "quid pro quo" in which the public is given "meaningful disclosure in exchange for being excluded from practicing the invention for a limited period of time."” Univ. of Rochester v. G.D. Searle & Co., 358 F.3d 916, 922 (Fed. Cir. 2004). In this case, the Specification does not provide a meaningful disclosure of the invention to the public in return for the grant of a patent, failing to satisfy the basic quid pro quo underlying the patent system.
