Abstract
The risk presented by diverse microorganisms as bioweapons must be assessed, and the historical evolution and usage of biological agents needs to be better understood, due to the rising threat of terrorism. Potentially more powerful than traditional and chemical weapons are biological warfare agents. The advancements in technology and biochemistry over the past century have made it easier to build and produce such weapons. Additionally, genetic engineering may have the greatest threat. The ease of manufacture, widespread accessibility of biological agents, and technological know-how have all contributed to the proliferation of biological weapons and the rise in demand for them among emerging nations. This review explores the ideas of biological warfare, including its stages of development, applications, and historical attempts to curtail its spread. The threat of biological weapons is serious and real; it is not limited to our country or the domain of science fiction.
