As a student pharmacist, I am interested in how I can make this world a better place

Is it possible to create a virus that will attack only certain races or people with certain diseases (schizophrenics, homosexuals)? If so, why hasn't this virus been created yet?

Sorry, but I also do not understand the meaning of the question, especially when combined with a comment.

No, a virus that will attack certain races is impossible, since the very concept of "race" is outdated today .

Genetic studies have shown that each "racial trait" is determined by several genes, the range of each of which does not coincide. Populations differ not in genotypes, but in the frequency of certain alleles that do not affect the basic functions of a person [4].

https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Race # Race_concept_in_modern_science

Ie the virus has nothing to "attach" to quite reliably, there is no gene that unambiguously indicates one single race. And there are no races with clear boundaries.

Also about homosexuality. I'm not even talking about the fact that homosexual behavior can be a fashion, and not something genetically predetermined. But even when they talk about genetic causes, there is no such gene that would always include homosexual behavior.

With regard to schizophrenia, the same is true, read:

Presumably, inheritance is complex, with the possible interaction of several genes that increase the risk to a critical value or cause several pathological processes that add up to a single diagnosis [90] [91]. Studies point to the non-specificity of the detected schizophrenia risk genes: they can increase the likelihood of developing other psychotic diseases such as bipolar disorder [92] [93].

If you are so difficult to ask a question about viruses as ways to fight diseases, then, of course, these are, for example, long-known and very promising

https: //ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacteriophages

viruses that selectively attack bacteria.

Viruses can also "repair" the genes of our cells, for example, you can read here:

First, homosexuals are normal people. It was considered a disease 30-50 years ago. Secondly, there is no such a single disease of schizophrenia, there is a whole spectrum of ailments, and there are various hypotheses about their origin. Thirdly, even if it was possible to create a virus against a certain race, there is no point in betting on it if there are old, proven methods: carpet bombing, chemical weapons, and so on. It is enough to destroy the entire population of areas of crowded habitation of people of a particular race, and the result will be much more complete than from some kind of virus. Fourthly, we don't even have a reliable vaccine against influenza, because different strains come, it mutates, and if this offensive virus of yours is released under normal conditions, its strains will quickly destroy Russians, Finns, Eskimos, Dargins, Swedes and anyone else. ... This could be suitable for aggressive aliens, but it would be easier for them to attack all of humanity at once indiscriminately. Fifth, where have you seen purebreds? They are almost gone. But your project was successfully implemented by Hitler, who destroyed the population of mental hospitals. He did this even before any genocide. Feel free to give your opinion on this incident.

I remember that the Nazis were engaged in such projects (you spent an hour, not the granddaughter of Goebbels?) but at that time they did not succeed.

The fact is that the immune processes. people of different races have almost the same course and the differences in the genotype are not that significant (otherwise we would not stupidly interbreed, like a species, between different races).

Perhaps in the distant "bright future" this is possible .

Although I personally stake on nanoviruses, if I really consider such a theory.

In the end, the viral weapon has not disappeared anywhere, so you can freely discuss such things ... I hope.

So, from the point of view of programming simplicity, it is easier for artificial intelligence or micro-robots to give certain signs to a recognition program for an attack than to try to select a "natural" virus.

You know, what's the funniest thing? if this can be done, it will be easier not to kill people, but to heal. after all, if it is possible to customize the program so strongly, then let it repair the body (say, a mentally ill) than destroy it.
