Could the virus have been engineered to target people with specific genes?

According to a new study published just days ago in the journal Science, researchers who infected a group of specially bred mice with the virus “saw a range of reactions, from zero [symptoms] to death by hemorrhagic fever,” The Washington Post reported, citing the study’s findings.
The scientists were studying the varied reactions to the disease, and were specifically measuring how different genes in the mice altered the course of the viral infection. In doing so, researchers were able to determine which genes in humans are more vulnerable to death by the virus.
The study is the first truly viable mouse study involving the Ebola virus, which has killed about 5,000 people in…
