I was wondering about a couple of things?
1.	How big (in $$) is the market share for Taq?-Of course this counts
Roche's patent on the standard Taq enzyme and 'other' unidentified and
perhaps related enzymes to be discovered one day in the future..


1.	What is the latest info on the battle to patent EST's?  What is the
current Patent and Trademark Office's position of the situation?  Has NIH
given up the effort?

Factual and opinionated information appreciated.
