Abstract

Since the invention of vaccination by Jenner live vaccines have been key components of immunization programs. However, in the modern era the justification for the role of live vaccines is worth re-evaluating. Here we discuss, using specific examples, about how the use and development of live vaccines will be managed in the genomics era.
