    The Whittemore Peterson Institute was easily the hit of the IACFS/ME conference. They've identified a viral subset (biomarker on the way) with a increased incidence of cancer which has a distinct genetic susceptibility. THis is the first really strongly documented subset in ME/CFS. Cleaning that subset out (20% of the community?) clears the way to identify other subsets (since that one is not obscuring the view. Its a stunning accomplishment for a young program.
