    Who is Judy Mikovits?

    This week we learned from the NY Times about her whereabouts before she became the Director of Research at the Whittemore Petersen Institute.

    And now the WPI website has posted the Executive Staff biographies

    Looking at her background its almost like she was destined to make this discovery. Could it have been anyone else? I don't think so.

    It coulda been someone else, it woulda been someone else. For certain. But definitely not just any given prof, fellow, or firm. And it may count for a lot one day to have had it 6 months earlier, 3 years earlier, or 10 years earlier, to say the least. Who would name a price for even six more months in this vale of troubles? When its time to die, you find that you cant name one. I didnt deduce this fact, I tasted it.

    A lot of credit goes to DeRisi too, a formidable technology maestro. He's the one who made this push into supercharged virus discovery with his beautiful brute force "Virochip" and so discovered XMRV.

    Heres a great and funny video where he talks the Virochip talk, nontechnically:

    Great video!!

    Eric, thanks for posting that video. It is wonderfully informative and very funny! It's eerie to see that this was filmed in 2006 and he talks about how they sequenced a newly found retrovirus. In the last 3 minutes of the video, Joe shows (then unpublished) data about XMRV. Just brilliant!

    garages and discoveries

    This is great, Eric.

    Joe DeRisi says that for the price of a Camry you could "build a DNA array machine in your garage." Just download the instructions. Then you could be "making DNA chips" and "decoding some program patterns rapidly." He says it's a lot of fun!

    Wouldn't that be great Garcia? Fabulous things have come from people experimenting in their garages.

    The whole video is great. For the info on prostate cancer, RNaseL and the discovery of the new retrovirus, it starts at 13:30. If you forward to that point, though, you'll miss the fun.
