China should strengthen application work of biological breeding patents overseas, even though the country has seen some developments in this regard.

According to a report issued by a development and research center with the China National Intellectual Property Administration on Tuesday, the number of patent applications involving biological breeding has had rapid growth in the world over the past decade, and most applicants came from China and the United States.

It said patent application and relevant research relating to biological breeding is even more energetic in China, adding that many Chinese applicants are those from academic institutions and universities, such as Zhejiang University, China Agricultural University and Nanjing Agricultural University.

While lauding biological breeding can improve breeding efficiency, the report added technology can also give stronger support to food safety and ecological security in China.

But the report pointed out more than 96 percent of such patents were applied for by Chinese at home, which means relevant researchers in China still lack the awareness of applying for patent protection abroad and there are few social service agencies that can help them do the application overseas.

Therefore, it suggested the country strengthen its biological breeding patent plan and projects overseas to enhance international competitiveness.

Considering the applicants are scattered in academic institutes and universities, it also called for the country to promote the industrialization of biological breeding technology to further improve the breeding efficiency.
