Washington, Feb 13 (ANI): In a major step towards better chemotherapy treatments, scientists have created tiny "smart bombs" by modifying a common plant virus, which can deliver drugs only to specific cells inside the human body without affecting surrounding tissue.
In PSNL's Plant Protection Research Unit, plant pathologist Stewart Gray is using genomics to find genes that regulate plant virus transmission by insect vectors.
The novel method uses a modified plant virus in order to transiently infect the plant tissues and cells with genes that encode a special enzyme that is able to permanently change the plant genome in predetermined regions and in a specific manner.
