Natural Antiviral System Inspires New Tool For Researchers

Natural Antiviral System Inspires New Tool For Researchers

“How will this system work if I remove one vital piece?” For researchers studying living organisms, answering this question is often a major component of their research. The system in question may be as small as three molecules or as large as a whole animal. Depending on the system and the nature of its components different tools are brought to bear.
