Title: A Brief Review of Biothreats and Biodefense
Authors: Klaus, Saalbach
Abstract: Growing concerns that the research on bioweapons is intensified again and recent developments in synthetic biology, genetic engineering and gain of function (GoF) research indicate the need for a review of biothreats and biodefense. After a brief review of the classical biological weapons and recent developments the potential of GoF research and possible defense strategies are presented. Finally, potential new biothreats are discussed. The aim of the paper is to discuss ways to enhance biodefense and biosecurity.
