The human microbiota, often referred to as the "forgotten organ," is a large collection of predominantly bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi, and archaea. With around 40 trillion bacterial cells, their size eclipses the number of cells in your own body. What does the latest research tell us about this hidden ecosystem and the constant communication that exists between the gut and brain?

CAS STNext will soon be enhanced with an additional field in CAplus that indicates the Ultimate Owner of the IP. With this data, search strategies for company names could be expanded to find those patents where an organization was not the original patent assignee, but still own the IP. Using the Analyze command, it is possible to analyze the entries in this field to find which organizations have acquired IP rights or to whom IP rights were transferred. Join us for a preview of this new functionality.

Many databases on CAS STNext have Japanese patent information. This e-seminar will identify those databases and their specific Japanese patent coverage. The session will also cover the differences in patent number formats over time, the various kind codes used by the Japanese patent office, and the two Japanese classification systems (FCL and FTERM). Links to the Japanese national register will also be discussed. This e-seminar is geared to searchers of all levels.
