Flu researchers volunteer to temporarily stop research

So my boss, amongst other prominent flu biologists have 'volunteered' to not do H5 transmission work for the next 60 days and to form an international forum to discuss the implications of this and similar research. This forum will include researchers, public heath officials, and governmental representatives and will hopefully result in some more level headed decisions being made on this subject, and in the future. No word yet on whether or not the chickens and swine are joining the moratorium on creating dangerous viruses.
