VITALY TCHERNENKO: This is all very frustrating, I have a colleague, in New York, Dr. Amherst. Gordon. He was at Vector for one-year exchange years ago. Very productive time. He was very interested in my work, taking a dangerous virus - Ebola, say - and make small changes to the genome, to make the virus less deadly but also more...fertile. In the end, the harmless version will win out over the harmful one, this is the idea. At the time it was theory; now maybe it is possible using computer and modified 3-D printer. I want to speak to Dr. Amherst, and see what he think. I have called him, but he has not yet answered.
