In this regard, we emphasize the second rationale to obviousness-type double patenting, which is “to prevent multiple infringement suits by different assignees asserting essentially the same patented invention.” In re Hubbel, --- F.3d----, 2013 WL 828475,*3 (Fed.

“[T]he determination of what is needed to support generic claims to biological subject matter depends on a variety of factors, such as the existing knowledge in the particular field, the extent and content of the prior art, the maturity of the science or technology, the predictability of the aspect at issue, and other considerations appropriate to the subject matter.” Capon v.
