Thanks Seena.

Thanks Seena.

That is a really cool idea. I hope it works. I learned about attenuated or killed microbes as vaccines or using "noninfectious" strains to confer partial protection, but the concept of modifying the infectious agent through genetic engineering to produce a vaccine strain is new to me.
