Nevertheless, as the Examiner points out, the claimed scheme is similar in character to the ranking of available therapeutic treatment regimens to guide the selection of a therapeutic treatment regimen covered by the claims at issue in SmartGene, Inc. v. Advanced Biological Labs., SA, 555 F. App'x 950 (Fed. Cir.), cert, denied, 135 S. Ct. 58, 190 L. Ed. 2d 32 (2014).
