Abstract: Despite enormous efforts in biomedical research there is still a shortage of safe and efficacious viral vaccines. To develop a new vaccine is also costly and time consuming. We propose a synthetic biology approach for making viruses less harmful by making many small modifications to their genetic sequences. We establish using computational methods that viruses have pervasive, species-specific genomic signatures, and that alteration of the genomic signature by systematic modifications to a vi... more
