2.29.9 Requirements for Amino Acid and Nucleotide Sequences on Compact Disc or Other Electronic Means

Proposed amendments reflect changes to the MPP concerning the implementation of the ST.26 standard which come into effect on 1 July 2022.

Please note that I have:

- amended the suggested first sentence under the heading "Requirements for Amino Acid and Nucleotide Sequences for applications filed on or after 1 July 2022" as the sentence suggested appeared to contain a typographical error.

- set up the hyperlinks so the hyperlinked pages open in a new window as I thought this would be more convenient for examiners.
