The US Patent and Trademark Office has recently updated its patent database, adding access to the full text of all US patent applications since March 15, 2001. This is in addition to the full text of all patents issued since 1976. The site contains a database searchable by quick (two-term) or advanced Boolean protocol or by patent number. Containing applications from a wide range of technologies such as genomics, microchip engineering, and optics, the patent application database may prove useful both for scientists developing patents themselves and for those simply interested in the latest technological advances.
