Patent Lens comes to us from Australia, via a science and technology-focused nonprofit called CAMBIA — originally an acronym for “Center for the Application of Molecular Biology to International Agriculture” — as part of the organization’s “public good mandate.”

Patent Lens is a searchable full-text database of more than 7 million patents and patent applications from the World Intellectual Property Organization, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office,  the European Patent Office, and IP Australia. New bulk data from these agencies is uploaded weekly,

Also, the Patent Lens Sequence Project allows searching of 80 million DNA and protein sequences disclosed in patents.
