Corn Patent Information Service
We provide on-line information regarding patented and PVP-protected corn/maize inbred, hybrid, and synthetic population germplasm. This includes expired or expiring patents and PVPs, as well as newly patented and PVP-protected germplasm. The searchable database includes pedigree information for patented hybrids, hybrids with common parents, pedigree of patented or PVP-protected inbreds, heterotic background, and inbred use in subsequent breeding and development of next-generation inbreds. The underlying database is updated weekly to provide maximum information in a timely manner. Flexible on-line subscription options are available through our easy-to-use website.
