    Novavax can start without Seed Virus

    Novavax does not need to wait for a seed virus. They can start work on a vaccine, if they choose, with genetic sequences downloaded from the web. According to this article---------
    newsDOTdiscoveryDOTcom/human/vaccine-virus-particlesDOThtm
    the info was available 2 weeks ago.
    "Webby and others have already started work on an H7N9 vaccine using so-called "reverse
    engineering " — starting from the virus's gene sequences, posted by the Chinese on the Internet two weeks ago." Even if NVAX were not commisioned, formally or informally, it would only make sense for them to start, even if it meant taking resources away from other projects. When potentially dire circumstances present themselves, for them not to prepare as quickly as possible would be just about unthinkable. This is exactly the kind of situation that can reveal their potential advantages as a company.
