Through an innovative feat of plant biotechnology and vaccine design, researchers in the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University have successfully turned tobacco plants into vaccine production factories to combat the deadliest form of plague. The vaccine elicits a protective immune response in guinea pigs. The results are considered to be a milestone in the future development of a new vaccine for human use. Plague, caused by a rod-shaped bacterium called Yersinia pestis, no longer invokes the "black death" feared throughout history, having been widely tamed since the advent of antibiotics.

Mixing COVID vaccines: Trial adds in Moderna & Novavax doses
From Canine Parvovirus to Cucumber Mosaic virus, the virology is extensive. Luckily because of modern science and innovations in biotechnology, these viruses are being prevented and eradicated so plants and animals can have long, healthy lives. Canine Parvovirus is an animal disease that comes in two different forms. An example of a vaccination, where a booster is not required would be the Rabies Canine vaccination.
Novel technologies are being sought to replace the traditional pesticides used to protect plants, particularly edible plants such as cereals. Plant diseases and pests cause considerable crop losses and threaten global food security. The diseases and pests have traditionally been fought with chemical pesticides, which spread throughout our environment and may be hazardous to human health, beneficial organisms and the environment. The vaccine triggers a mechanism known as RNA interference, which is an innate defence mechanism of plants, animals and other eukaryotic organisms against pathogens.
The purpose of this final assignment is to briefly describe how I met the student learning outcomes for the course. Within Leadership. The book goes all the way back to the beginning of the polio epidemic and essentially progresses to the present. The Captured chronicled a long period of captivity, but did not appear to exceed a decade.
