  • Using the H5N1 Avian Flu virus as their prototype the U.S. government reports that they have begun to design what is known as a reassortant virus by systematically: “swapping genes of an H5N1 avian virus with the genes of an H3N2 virus, the strain behind the most recent flu outbreaks†¦ Over the next six months, CDC scientists plan to substitute the eight genes of each virus one by one with the eight genes from the other virus in order to see which of more than 250 possible combinations create viable viruses.
