This report presents a tutorial of a patent landscaping process using the PatSnap Connected Innovation Intelligence platform, that is exemplified via an analysis of the CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technology. This tutorial is an expanded version of a patent landscaping process that was recently applied to a National Institute of Health (NIH) project as part of providing commercialization assessments to SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) and STTR (Small Business Technology Transfer) funded companies. The NIH project was executed for a contract awarded to Vikriti Management Consulting where Moeller Ventures served as a subcontractor executing 200 patent landscapes for life science companies.

The patent landscaping analysis proved to be one of the most highly regarded sections of the NIH commercialization assessment project as it provided important intelligence regarding companies’ intellectual property, which is one of the most valuable assets of a life science startup. The expanded process presented in this report provides a more powerful technique to gain insight about and craft patent protection strategy for an IP sector. The six steps of the landscaping process covered in this report are listed below.

Step 1: Create the Domain Collection of Patent Documents

Step 2: Profile the Domain Collection

Step 3: Tabulate the Assignees and Inventors

Step 4: Analyze Citations

Step 5: Analyze Patent Document Technology Classification Codes

Step 6: Use Landscape Diagraming to Explore the Domain Collection
