It was interesting to see smallpox making it to the headlines - the Guardian recently ran a story about how easy it was for them to buy a small part of the genome of the virus, and therefore how easy it would be for someone to make the whole virus and perform acts of terrorism with it.

This story was the subject of one of Alan Cann's VirologyBytes podcasts: go to and look for the podcast for 16th June.
