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.

    Better to post more than just a link. At least copy the abstract here.

    You've done well to find one that seemingly everyone missed. The way to be most helpful to forum members is to make the title of the paper the title of the thread, then to put the abstract AND the link in the first comment.

    As for the content of this paper it looks like they went hunting wooly mammoths and came back with some rabbits. No significant SNPs in the whole population and only one in women. They report some differences in methylation but a) it was unclear how statistically significant those are, and b) I actually don't understand methylation anyway so even if the results were huge I probably wouldn't grasp them!
