International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Interesting.
    Is it me, or did he hint that the unidentified DNA could belong to unidentified species other than bacteria, viruses, and fungi etc.?
    I felt that perhaps that was a bit of hyperbole, to add a bit of mystery to the talk to make it more tantalising.
    But I couldn't work out any reason why the unidentified DNA couldn't belong to unknown species of bacteria, viruses and fungi etc.
    Interesting nonetheless.

    I think all bacteria have certain genes in common, all viruses have certain genes in common, etc. These organisms must not have the common genes of any known species.
