DIAZGRANADOS, Cristina; HINCAPIE ROJAS, Viviana  and  CHAPARRO-GIRALDO, Alejandro. Aproach study of freedom to operate for transgenic line rice in Colombia. Rev. colomb. biotecnol [online]. 2016, vol.18, n.1, pp.165-172. ISSN 0123-3475.

The development of a genetically modified variety (GM) is a scientific and legal challenge, by genetic engineering techniques used and the intellectual property rights (IPR) involved. Approximate analysis of freedom of operation for a GM line derived from a Colombian rice variety, express an optimized version of the cry1Ac gene; in order to pursue their commercial release in Colombia was made. To do this, a deconstruction of innovation, which potentially protectable elements DPI on which patent searches and patent applications were made in the national and international context, databases were determined public access was performed. 59 patents and patent applications were found in the international arena. The Superintendency of Industry and Trade of Colombia (SIC) three applications for patents that may affect the freedom of operation for this innovation were found. It is concluded that the higher the possibility of developing a GM rice line expressing cry1Ac gene without affecting the interest of third parties , as long as it is done in the country to commercialize.

Keywords : plant biotechnology; cry1Ac,; intellectual property rights; patents.
