COOPERATIVE PATENT CLASSIFICATION

COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY ; LIBRARIES, e.g. CHEMICAL LIBRARIES, IN SILICO LIBRARIES
NOTE
-
In this subclass, the first place priority rule is applied, i.e. at each hierarchical level, classification is made in the first appropriate place.

When classifying in this subclass, subject matter of interest is also classified in other appropriate places:
library members are also classified in the appropriate places elsewhere in the IPC, (e.g. in section C) according to established procedure relating to "Markush"-type formulae (see paragraph 101 of the Guide);

methods or apparatus covered by this subclass are also classified for their biological, chemical, physical or other features in the appropriate palces in the IPC, if such features are of interest, e.g.

A01N Biocides
A61K Preparations for medical, dental or toilet purposes
A61P Therapeutic activity of compounds
B01D Separation
B01J Chemical or physical processes, e.g. catalysis; Apparatus therefor
B01L Chemical or physical laboratory apparatus
B29 Shaped plastics
C01, C07, C08 Inorganic, organic or organic macromolecular compounds; Methods of preparation or separation thereof
C12 Biochemistry. microbiology, enzymology including micro-organisms or enzymes, preparing them, using them to synthesis compounds or compositions; Measuring or testing processes involving micro-organisms or enzymes; Mutation or genetic engineering
C22 Metal alloys
G01N Chemical or physical analysis
G01R, G01T Physical measurements methods; Apparatus thereof
G03F Photomechanical methods
G06F Electrical digital data processing
G06K Data processing
G06T Image data processing
G09F Displaying; Advertising
