    The reporter for the Cleveland Plain Dealer wrote, "Silverman's lab has been trying to fill requests as quickly as possible, sending the virus DNA -- not the live virus -- by mail in a test tube. (The researcher can then insert the DNA into human cells in the lab, which makes the actual virus.)"

    I was surprised by that. I thought Silverman would be sending RNA.

    Does anyone know if Klimas will continue her role/job at the U. of Miami?

    Advocate, I have no idea about this, but I wonder if it's pre-insertion DNA, which a researcher can insert into human DNA, thus creating virions.

    RNA might be hard to assemble into a virus.

    Viruses might be unsafe to send through the mail.

    Just a guess.
