Traditional Knowledge and Medicine Resources

USPTO employees consult the World Wide Web to obtain information that may be helpful for search purposes. One of the greatest challenges in finding useful Traditional Knowledge websites for searching, is the correct identification of the botanicals (and their active constituents) cited in patent applications. The Internet is an excellent source for this type of information.

Note: Some of the useful sites listed below are for general informational use and their presence on this list is not to be viewed as an endorsement by USPTO for any products or information presented at these sites.
