Hi. I'm helping a friend who is a writer.

She needs to run a few things by someone who actually does this kind of work.

Does anyone do this work?

Assistance is appreciated.

I'm a longtime lurker, but I manage a pediatric gene therapy research lab using different viral vectors as our gene modifying agents. So, I might fit the bill. :)

Hi Dazzle. Thanks so much for responding. If you don't mind my picking your brain...


My friend has the following questions (1) what are the steps in a sequencing virus (2) what are the steps in creating an antiviral agent. 3) In a hypothetical scenario: if someone wanted to cause a permanent gene mutation in a person (an extensive one) how would they stop the body from reverting or rejecting the mutation (if it is even possible).? 4) would a virus be a viable method of delivery for such a mutation?

Thank you!
