TODO: if we had cheap de novo DNA synthesis, how hard would it be to bootstrap a virus culture from that? https://github.com/cirosantilli/cirosantilli.github.io/issues/60
Is it easy to transfect a cell with the synthesized DNA, and get it to generate full infectious viral particles?
It might already be possible to order dissimulated sequences online:
