According to recent research from the United States, "Whole animal imaging allows viral replication and localization to be monitored in intact animals, which provides significant advantages for determining viral and host factors that determine pathogenesis. To investigate effects of interferons on spatial and temporal progression of vaccinia infection, we generated recombinant viruses that express firefly luciferase or a monomeric orange fluorescent protein. These viruses allow vaccinia infection to be monitored with bioluminescence or fluorescence imaging, respectively."
