The Academician’s private residences shall remain off-limits to

the Genetic Inspectors. We possess no retroviral capability,
we are not researching retroviral engineering, and we shall not
allow this Council to violate faction privileges in the name of this
ridiculous witch hunt!”

—Fedor Petrov,
Vice Provost for University Affairs
Retroviral Engineering, a specialized branch of Bio-Engineering, uses engineered viruses to deliver genetic alterations. This application can be used for peaceful, healing purposes, but can also be twisted by the same militant researchers behind Advanced Military Algorithms into a weapon of terrible destruction.
