An invention relating to plants and animals can be patented, if the implementability of the invention is not limited to a certain plant variety or animal breed. Even a microbiological procedure and products of such a procedure, for example plants and animals, can be patented. However, methods consisting of biological procedures, such as cross-breeding and selection, for producing plants and animals cannot be patented.  

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.
