jace, What test are you talking about? On p.5 they describe using 2.5ug of DNA (not .25), which is 833ng of PBMC DNA, in one of the tests. This was several times the amount of DNA used in the WPI Science study. Beyond that, this test was 10x more sensitive, based on calibration measures they can detect 1 copy of XMRV or MuLV in 2,500 ng of DNA. I don't think they are making simple errors of arithmetic like you seem to suggest. And most definitely they are not intentionally subverting their research just to persecute CFS patients. Something else is going on here, eventually it will be found out.
