I am a 4th year biotech UG with an interest in viruses. The herpes simplex ll virus cure was found by genetically removing a protein used to cloak the bodies immune response to prevent production of anti-bodies, the Gd2 protein.
I want to test this in mice, but I am not sure where to even begin?
Is there is a site I can order the modified virus in vaccine format for research? Subsequently, what if I wanted to test this on other viruses to removing cloaking mechanisms, how would I cut out a piece of virus RNA/DNA?
