Where life imitates art by Nigel Franks
It's a classic, cliched plot for a disaster movie or book: an innocent researcher makes a mistake and a dangerous plague which threatens humanity is unleashed. Is there a way that that could happen in real life? What would it take?
As it's not a deliberate mistake, let's rule out genetic engineering: cutting and splicing genes.
