Viral Gene Therapy
Researchers use this technique to carry virus of the genetic cargo into cells, viruses evolved to do with their own Genetic material repair or do missing replacement. Virus are obligate intracellular parasites Very efficient at transferring viral DNA into host cell Specific target cells depending on the viral attachment proteins (capsid or glycoproteins) non-essential Genes of virus are deleted and exogenous genes are inserted.
