The U.S. government is asking scientific journals not to publish details of studies conducted on the bird flu virus because of fears that the information could be used by bioterrorists.
A Dutch and an American research team have mutated the avian flu virus so that it can become highly transmissible among humans.
The engineered viruses have not been released; they remain locked away in high-security labs. The sole reason the researchers wanted to deliberately create a deadly superbug was to simply better understand what changes in the virus would need to happen in the real world for it to become dangerous among humans.
