Major updates have been added on two of the largest search platforms for locating peptide and nucleic acid sequences within patent records, and Intellogist is here to bring you all the details on these recent changes to to the coverage, search, and display features on GenomeQuest and the USGENE BLAST Search Portal. GenomeQuest is a biological sequence data management platform created by GenomeQuest, Inc., and GenomeQuest maintains its own patent sequence database, GQ-PAT. Many other non-patent data files are also simultaneously searchable on the platform, such as GenBank, RefSeq, Swiss-Prot, and other NCBI and EBI files. We last highlighted the Chinese patent office sequence data added to GenomeQuest in 2010, and today we’ll look at additional India, Brazil, and Chinese patent sequence data now available in an Emerging Countries Domestic Patents Archive. Additional GenomeQuest updates include normalized patent assignee names and subject database filtering.
The USGENE® BLAST® Search Portal is a subscription-based online search platform created by the SequenceBase Corporation that allows users to search USGENE®, a database that lists peptide and nucleotide sequences from US published applications and issued patents. Previously in July 2012, there were a number of updates added to the portal, and additional updates were implemented in December 2012, including options to expand and download all alignments for search results.

[tweetmeme source=”Intellogist” only_single=false] We’ve taken a brief look at the USGENE® BLAST® Search Portal, a subscription online platform created by SequenceBase Corporation that gives users access to the USGENE® database. Through the USGENE BLAST Search Portal, users can search for peptide and nucleotide sequences listed in US published applications and listed patents. An email from a SequenceBase representative recently outlined some of the major changes that the the search portal went through in July 2012, including updates to search, record viewing, filtering, and data export features. Professional patent searchers, especially those specializing in the biotechnology field, will want to stay up-to-date on these changes to the official search portal for USGENE, which is a major resource for sequence data in US patent documents.
After the jump, we’ll review 10 major changes to search, viewing, filter, and export features on the USGENE BLAST Search Portal!

[tweetmeme source=”Intellogist” only_single=false] Our last two Intellogist round-ups highlighted some important updates on patent search systems and big changes on the Intellogist wiki, and today’s round-up won’t disappoint you! First up, the Orbit.com patent and design search portal from Questel is releasing a new update, and we have the details of that update summed up on the Intellogist wiki. Next, we’ll look at the new search portal for USGENE, a database that allows users to search all available peptide and nucleotide sequences from the published applications and issued patents of the USPTO. Learn how you can sign up for a free 30-day trial of this search portal. Finally, we’ll look at how you can advertise your patent or trademark search products through Intellogist and reach an entire community of intellectual property professionals.
After the jump, learn about the Orbit.com update, the USGENE BLAST Search Portal, and advertising opportunities on Intellogist!

There have been a lot of changes to Intellogist lately (with more to come), reflecting the ever-changing nature of patent information and search systems. After the jump, you’ll find samples of these updates, including info on: FreePatentsOnline, IEEE Xplore, Rospatent, GenomeQuest, USGENE, and a fun crossword!

Recently I was able to attend a demo of the GenomeQuest sequence searching tool, which is designed to support sequence searching for prior art investigations. GenomeQuest provides access to proprietary patent database collections which have been indexed especially for sequence searching, as well as to public access databases of genetic and protein sequences.
One of GenomeQuest’s most notable databases, GQ-PAT, contains a proprietary collection of nucleotide and protein sequences extracted from patent collections, including the US, EPO, WO/PCT, and the DNA Databank of Japan (where the JPO deposits patents that contain sequences). Because some WO/PCT documents are only available as images and not as electronic text, GenomeQuest employs an in-house Optical Character Recognition (OCR) process that can involve human editing with the assistance of a related machine-readable documents, such as a US family member. The patents in GQ-PAT are also supplemented by corresponding INPADOC records to ensure that their legal status and assignee information stays up-to-date with this source.
