Griffith University in Australia has partnered with vaccines manufacturing company Indian Immunologicals (IIL) to develop a Covid-19 vaccine.

The partners intend to create a live attenuated vaccine. They will use codon de-optimisation technology to alter the virus’ genome to reduce its replication efficiency in human cells, making it harmless.
