Researchers say a next-gen sequencing approach allows them to subtract the entire human genetic sequence from the genetic material of a blood sample and identify viruses based on what remains.
Intel's McAfee security unit is working on ways to prevent vehicles from becoming vulnerable to malicious software.
Researchers at UC Berkeley have turned a benign virus into a tool that assembles structures similar to collagen--a process that could be used to create complex tissues such as corneas and bones.
A team out of the University of Leeds has already produced molecular signatures for two forms of a childhood respiratory-disease virus, and plans many more.

Engineers at Harvard say the device, which they reveal in Nature Communications, uses light from a laser to trap nanoparticles such as viruses and study them more closely.
MIT researchers say a new approach destroys infected cells without harming healthy ones, in what sounds like a one-size-fits-all way to kill any virus.
