"The symptoms for both the common flu and biowarfare agents can be near identical," explains Dr. Maria Salvato, a researcher and professor at the Institute of Human Virology, a center of the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute and affiliated with the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

At the IHV, Dr. Salvato's lab will expose blood cell cultures to five different viruses that cause flu-like symptoms (influenza, respiratory syncytial virus, parainfluenza virus, rhinovirus, and arenavirus) to determine which genes can discriminate between natural disease and biowarfare agents.
