Biodefense has been advancing, particularly in the U.S., subsequent to the 2001 anthrax attack. The use of biological warfare can be traced back to 1346 A.D. when plaque afflicted human corpses were hurled over the besieged walls of Caffa. Presently, the use of biological warfare is banned following a United Nations convention signed in 1972. However, the absence of verification protocol has not been sufficient to prevent countries from developing biological warfare. Biological warfare has also become the weapons of choice for terrorist organizations. To combat this, the development of biodefense is an active research field.
