Life in a Virology Lab...

Hmm, this depends on the perspective on which you see it. Is a virus even considered life? This is debatable. Imagining the virus to be a conscious 'thinking, feeling, thing'... and taking the concept of 'life' even further... Life in a virology lab must be quite terrifying if you ask me. Short. Constantly being probed by scientists. Destroyed. Confined to the space within a flask. For the scientist though, it is interesting. Learning to work modified DNA into bacteria for replication is very alluring to say the least.
