English abstract

The aim of this study is to demonstrate the basics of the research productivity and linkage between public science and technology development in Genetic Engineering Research by taking the patent bibliometrics approach. The research productivity is demonstrated by patent count and the research linkage is examined by tracing the non-patent citations. 1,048 USPTO patents granted to Japan, Korea and Taiwan from 1976 to 2004 in genetic engineering including gene mutation, cell fusion, genetic modification and recombinant DNA and 2,006 referenced patents cited by those 1,048 patents were examined in this study. The author further constructed the linkage foundation between public science and technology development by examining 10,230 non-patent citations.

Item type: Conference paper
Keywords: patents, bibliometrics, Japan, Korea, Taiwan
