poxvirus officinalis -->
vaccinia virus
medical dictionary


<molecular biology, virology> DNA viruses used in several biotechnology applications, including expression vector systems. Because they can hold quite a lot of DNA, they can be used to make more than one protein at once in a cell, which can be useful for making proteins with more than one polypeptide chain.
