According to the Examiner, Novozymes A/S v. DuPont Nutrition Biosciences APS, 723 F.3d 1336 (Fed. Cir. 2013) requires Appellants to have "confirmed their predictions through individual variants or subclasses of variants expected to possess the claimed properties" in order to meet the written description requirement. (Id.) ...

"It is not necessary that every permutation within a generally operable invention be effective in order for an inventor to obtain a generic claim," Capon v Eshhar, 418 F.3d 1349, 1359 (Fed. Cir. 2005). We conclude that in light of the state of the art, and the knowledge of one of skill in the art, as well as the variety of examples made by Appellants, that there is a preponderance of evidence establishing that Appellants' 18 clones are a representative number of species of the claimed genus of modified Taq DNA polymerases.

Precedent illustrates that the 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. Eshhar, 418 F.3d 1349, 1359 (Fed. Cir. 2005).

Here, Anderson demonstrates that, at the time the instant application was filed, people of ordinary skill in the art recognized that "A-type doubly linked procyanidin oligomers of the catechins and/or epicatechins," as recited in the claims, referred to a group of compounds having defined structures. The Specification therefore did not need to describe the structure of those compounds in order to show possession of the claimed method. Cf Capon v. Eshhar, 418 F.3d at 1358 ("The Board's rule that the nucleotide sequences of the chimeric genes must be fully presented, although the nucleotide sequences of the component DNA are known, is an inappropriate generalization. When the prior art includes the nucleotide information, precedent does not set a per se rule that the information must be determined afresh.").

In Ariad, the court found that the written description “doctrine never created a heightened requirement to provide a nucleotide-by-nucleotide recitation of the entire genus of claimed genetic material; it has always expressly permitted the disclosure of structural features common to the members of the genus.” Ariad Pharmaceuticals, Inc. v. Eli Lilly and Co., 598 F.3d 1336, 1352 (Fed. Cir. 2010).

In Belkin International, Inc. et al v. Optimumpath, LLC, an expanded panel recently considered whether the Board has jurisdiction to decide SNQ matters in the context of inter partes reexamination. ... In essence, Belkin held that an SNQ attaches to a particular rejection. Accordingly, the determination that an SNQ exists with respect to a particular rejection does not necessarily permit a third party requestor to pursue proposed rejections not found to raise an SNQ outside of the attached rejection, regardless of whether or not the additional rejections are directed to the same claims.
