There's an interesting article on gene copywriting in the New York Times:
A woman with breast cancer wants to be screened for ovarian cancer, but
Myriad Genetics holds the patent to the gene and claims it has exclusive
rights to do the screening, but the woman's health insurance won't pay for
the screening because it thinks Myriad Genetics fees are too high.
