Unlike bacterial infections, viral infections can be difficult to treat with medicine. Usually, if you've got a virus, your doctor's best advice is to simply rest and allow your immune system to fight back. Antiviral medications prevent viruses from reproducing, but they can't actually stop the virus. However, scientists may have just found a new way to fight back.

This unique "Cut & Paste" technique has allowed researchers to reprogram viruses to wipe each other
