Furthermore, development of such skilled sets according the PIADC website is, “will be applied to ASF research and development through ongoing Classical Swine Fever vaccination discovery”. ASFV is a look-a-like virus to CSFV (genetically modified creation) which was previously studied at the biological warfare laboratory PIDAC. The research will initiate planning activities, basic research, and ‘vaccination’.
