 In Uncategorised

A biological agent — also called bio-agent or biological threat agent — is a bacterium, virus, protozoan, parasites, or fungus that can be used purposefully as a biological weapon in bioterrorism or biological warfare (BW). In addition to these living and/or replicating pathogens, biological toxins are also included among the bio-agents. More than 1,200 different kinds of potentially weaponizable bio-agents have been described and studied to date.
