Police traced Harman after finding that DNA on the brick almost matched the profile of Harman’s brother, which was in the British forensic database. Harman was convicted of the murder on April 19, 2004. Familial DNA searching allegedly also helped to produce a much more highly publicized conviction—that of Dennis Rader, the “BTK [bind, torture, kill] killer,” in Wichita, Kansas. According to a report quoted by Frederick Bieber in the summer 2006 Journal of Law, Medicine, and Ethics, when police began to suspect that Rader had committed a series of brutal murders 36 Issues in Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering in the Wichita area, they obtained a warrant to take a biopsy sample from a physician treating Rader’s daughter.

A year and a half later, in April 1987, the PTO ruled that genetically engineered animals (except humans), as well as human genes, cells, and organs, could also be patented. The first genetically engineered animal to be patented was the Harvard Oncomouse, a type of mouse designed to be a test animal in cancer research, which was patented in April 1988 by Harvard University. The PTO received 1,502 patent applications for transgenic animals in the decade that followed and approved more than 90. Most were genetically altered mice intended for medical research, but the list ranged from worms to sheep.

The United States has repeatedly pressured other nations to strengthen their legal protection of intellectual property in biotechnology, including patented living things. S. instigation, the World Trade Organization (WTO) formulated a controversial agreement called the Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights Agreement (TRIPS), which requires WTO members to make their national patent laws similar those in the United States. The supposed aim of TRIPS is to reduce impediments to international trade so that all countries can obtain the benefits of biotechnology (companies will not deal with countries that do not offer them patent protection), but opponents say that the agreement’s real purpose is to guarantee protection and high profits to multinational companies.
