    EHFPI, a database of Essential Host Factors (EHFs) for Pathogenic Infections. This database focuses on the collection and functional analysis of a specialized class of host cellular genes identified from (genome-wide) RNA interface (RNAi) screens. Notably, the knockdown effect of these genes greatly influences the infection of a pathogen (e.g., inhibit or increase infection) but not the viability of the host cells, thus designated as essential host factors (EHFs) for pathogenic infections.

    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..
