Biologists "Trick" Viruses into Extinction

Hivlifecycle Yale biologists are reversing the logic of species extinction by trying to trap viruses in habitats that force their extinction.

To avoid going extinct a population must not only survive, but also reproduce. Yale's Paul Turner, associate professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, tested the practicality of luring a virus population into the wrong cells within the human body, thus preventing virus reproduction and alleviating disease.
