A new reverse-genetics platform for SARS-CoV-2. Or, "I survived Clonathon 2022, and all I got was this lousy T-shirt"
Think I understand what’s being said here, but does that mean that a theoretical baddie could just put these 4 PCR made DNA fragments into us separately and we ( our cells) would combine them to make a nice new virus that would then spread onwards in the traditional way?
If so, how do they get the 4 different bits into our cells. We’d notice being injected with DNA wrapped in LNP. Would inhalable ‘ exosomes’ work - but how would they make those? Or do they just make the original one in the lab this way and then release it to do its magic the traditional way?
Does that mean SARS-Cov3~-Cov10 may also come out?
