Functionalities of recombinant virus


Baozhai Chen

A recombinant virus can develop naturally or be created using recombinant DNA technology to recombine bits of DNA. In most viruses, recombination is a common process that results in variety. It brings variants together that emerge separately within the same molecule, giving virus’ new ways to adapt to novel surroundings, hosts and resist selective constraints. As a result, doctors, epidemiologists, molecular biologists, and evolutionary biologists are all interested in studying viral recombination. Viruses can have a wide range of genomic architectures.
