“Scientists at John Innes Centre in Norwich, UK managed to create Cowpea mosaic virus particles that are missing their genetic material, turning them into drug ferrying containers that may prove useful against cancer and other localized diseases.” – Micheal, Medgadget

In plain English: genetically modified viruses can possibly carry drugs one day to cells that have cancer and other dangerous diseases! Keep up the great work Brits!
