Monkey Business Virus

Monkey Business was the name for a virus used by the eco-terrorist group Space Warriors. The virus edits human DNA from 98% shared with chimpanzees to 100%, changing the individual's appearance and intelligence.

The Space Warriors designed this virus to return humans to an earlier time in which species lived more harmoniously without damaging the environment. They threatened Ganymede with the virus, forcing political changes of the ISSP chief.[1]
