Journals: New York Times: Scientists to pause research on deadly strain of bird flu
Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Friday, January 20, 2012
Submitter An article by Denise Grady:

"The scientists who altered a deadly flu virus to make it more contagious have agreed to suspend their research for 60 days to give other researchers around the world time to discuss the work and determine the best way to proceed.

"A letter explaining the decision ([link]) is being published in two scientific journals, Science and Nature, which also plan to publish reports on the research, but in a redacted form omitting details that would let other researchers copy the experiments. The letter is signed by the scientists who produced the new, more contagious form of the flu virus, as well as by other leading flu researchers."
