Novel viral vectors deliver useful cargo to neurons throughout the brain and body.

Viruses have evolved to be highly effective vehicles for delivering genes into cells.  Such vectors have become critical tools for delivering genes to treat disease or to label neurons. Because viral vectors have been stripped of their own genes and, thereby, of their ability to replicate, they are no longer infectious, therefore, achieving widespread gene delivery with the vectors is
