HELLO
  YESTERDAY, I WAS READING THE VIROLOGY SECTION OF A MICROBIOLOGY
TEXT ( THE BOOK WAS PUBLISHED THIS YEAR ), AND IT SAID THAT VIRUSES
ARE EITHER THE RESULT OF A MUTATION ON THE GENETIC MATERIAL OF THE CELL
( LETS SAY EUKARYOTIC CELLS ) OR THE RESULT OF RETROEVOLUTION OF THE CELL.

 MY QUESTION IS;
IF VIRUSES RESULTED FROM THE MUTATION OF GENETIC MATERIAL, HAS ANY
SCIENTIST IN THE FIELD ATTEMPTED TO CREATE SUCH MUTATION TO TEST THIS                               
THEORY OR HYPOTHESIS?
