The Andromeda Strain

Human's greatest predator is biological infection and is one of the few scenarios that could cause us great harm. we are in battle right now, using our biotechnology to get ahead of antibiotic bacteria. After a satellite crashes near a New Mexico village, the local residents begin dying out, the victims of a killer disease. By the time a team of scientists have arrived to investigate, the only survivors are an old tramp and an infant child. The team transfer them to an underground lab and work around the clock to identify the virus - which, it transpires, is somehow connected to an Earth bacteria-warfare project.
