How so? Accidentally build a sequencing machine or part thereof?

And there's also the likely violation of the 'non-obvious' requirement for patents if you can just accidentally do it as an individual 'power user'.

And how exactly do you distribute a tool for cleaning up the adapters from the sequence data (legally i mean), given their non-distribution policy?

I've asked, and no dice. It's not like i'm trying to sell my own library prep kits. Yet the sequences are available (in the wrong format) from a dozen different sources online.
