Viruses.. And Im not referring to the ones by programmers.

I normally am not very “up to speed” on the development in genetics and virology, as it normally does not interest me all that much.  Today I came across this article from the New Yorker discussing the evolution of viruses and how some viruses can work their way into our genetic structure, becoming benign over time but still carried (dormant, if you will). While I can’t begin to explain the entire meaning of the article, I highly recommend it as a 30 minute read-thru. It is well written and really makes one ponder the good, the bad, and the ugly of genetics and virology.
