                Before: McKELVEY, Senior Administrative Patent Judge, and SCHAFER                               
                and TORCZON, Administrative Patent Judges.                                                      
                TORCZON, Administrative Patent Judge.

                                                NO CONTEST                                                      
                       Peking University has filed a notice of no contest.  Paper 35.  Failure                  
                to contest is construed to be a request for adverse judgment.                                   
                Bd.R. 127(b)(4).  In the absence of a priority contest under 35 U.S.C.                          
                102(g)(1), we see no reason to prolong this proceeding.                                         
                       The parties should bear in mind their obligations under 35 U.S.C.                        
                135(c) to reduce any agreements or understandings regarding this
