In recent years, the study of viruses has become a most fascinating and rewarding area of current bio-chemical research. Early investigations proved that infectivity of viruses resulted from properties present in their nucleic acid when the similarity of viral nucleic acid with the genetic material of higher living forms was recognized, it became evident that study of nucleic acid at the viral level could be a valuable contribution to knowledge of what we call "life", and closely related to this, how life can duplicate itself: the phenomenon of continuity of specific genetic characteristics.
