Functional Uses of Viruses


Despite being a source of great unease and discomfort over the millenia, viruses, of late, have become an integral and necessary part of our microbiological society. Of recent times, the virus has become of popular use in the fields of medical science (i.e. vaccines), gene therapy and even nanotechnology. On a molecular level, the virus often acts like a small biomolecular tool which might assist in all sorts of 'molecular surgery'. See below to find out how modern research into virology has improved the life of humanity.
