The CRISPR patent battle continues to heat up with UC Berkeley asking the US patent office to let it subpoena George Church.  While Church is not directly involved with the ongoing patent dispute, his lab published an article similar to Zhang’s in the same 2013 edition of Science.  In addition to Church, lawyers for Berkeley are also requesting a subpoena for Shuailiang Lin, a former graduate student of Zhang’s who claims that the Zhang lab was not working on CRISPR prior to Doudna’s 2012 paper.
