Abstract

The agents for biological weapons (BWs) are easy to produce and have a tremendous power to harm. At the same time, their production is difficult to control, because harmful micro-organisms are easily available and the equipment for manufacturing them is also used for civil purposes. Control of the spread of BWs could also hamper the export of biotechnology in general.
