    I thought I'd start a thread on this paper as I've been finding the Italian muscle research really interesting. Unfortunately more than with most papers, my lack of knowledge of biology has got in the way of understanding it all (so I probably won't be able to add much).

    This one is testing gene expression on muscle (usually blood is the tissue type used in CFS). Because of expected contaminsation from other tissues they did some sort of global expression testing.
