Biotechnology and specifically, the plan genome manipulation is a matter that needs to be reconsidered by the juridical traditional frame, in order to adequate the norm to the new scientific advances. Intellectual Property recognizes patent rights on products which include biological material, as well as new vegetable varieties obtained, it could mean a limitation for the access to such class of product or plant variety. This work deals with some aspects of Biotechnology regarding to plant genomic, as well as the intellectual property´s legal issues in this matter.
