|Description||Bound volumes and files of Barker's collected research papers consisting of offprints from academic journals, arranged in a numbered sequence from 52 onwards. Many of these papers were written jointly by Barker and by other members of staff in the Chemistry Department at the University of Birmingham, or by Barker and chemists at other academic institutions. Typed indexes are provided at the beginning of volumes covering the period from 1957 to 1990. |
Papers from 1990 to 1991 largely comprise issues of European Biopatent Watch, a supplement to 'The Genetic Engineer & Biotechnologist' which was compiled by Barker and listed patents applied for. These files also contain occasional articles by Barker for 'The Genetic Engineer & Biotechnologist' and other academic journals, and copies of European Patent Applications submitted by companies which which Barker was acting as consultant. Papers dating from 1992 consist of issues of 'Opportunity File' compiled by Cranfield Biotechnology Limited, for which Barker was Patents Editor. Papers in these later files have been numbered by Barker, continuing the same sequence as his earlier research papers.
