Biological warfare and bioterrorism involve the deliberate use of biological agents (such as viruses and bacteria) as weapons against humans, animals or plants. In addition to causing serious illness and death, the use of such weapons could result in widespread disruption and immense economic harm. Rapid advances in life sciences and the globalization of biotechnology make this an area of growing concern.
