  1. -01-12-06 Tobacco Plant Manufactures Plague Vaccine (Scientific American)
      "Tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) is one of the oldest known diseases of the plant world. Plague--known as the 'black death' in medieval Europe--is one of the oldest diseases afflicting humans, and has become a focus of concern in recent years because of its potential use as a bioweapon. Now scientists have transformed TMV to infect host plants and produce immunizing proteins rather than debilitating leaf shrivel, turning greenhouse tobacco into a biofactory for plague vaccine." 3-05
