This image depicts a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) scientist, who was punching holes in a card containing the genes of an inactivated virus . The scientist was using a disposable biopsy punch, expelling the punches into a buffer. The viral genetic material is then separated from the punches, and placed into a solution. Subsequently, the viral RNA is extracted, and subjected to molecular testing. Photographer James Gathany
