Hi,
I was reading Virus X by Frank Ryan,
and noticed that viruses are little buggers to detect, so i was
wondering, that if U passed a suspect liquid thru the smallest filter
then looked at the filtered liquid.could you quickly detect a virus by
any of the below methods?

1.Are viruses electronically charged?
2.Can a quick optical search be done for G A C or T (maybe with a tag
molecule)?
3. If you drop a virus into a vat of GACT, when it duplicates, or
whatever it does, will it produce an electric current that can be
measured?
4) do they have a resonance frequency

Cheers
Liam
