Something that is only a discovery, such as the identification of a new gene, is not patentable. But if you have studied further what the gene's function is if it is used as a medicinal product or diagnostic tool, then it is an invention that can be patent protected. The protection is often defined as “isolated DNA molecules with (a certain) nucleotide sequence”. In other words, the protection cannot be said to cover DNA in nature, only artificial DNA molecules or DNA which is isolated from the human body and cut down to the piece you are interested in. 

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
