At the CFSAC meeting, the NHLBI Program Director reported that the BWG was in Phase 2, the optimal preparation of a sample. She said she expected results from this phase in early November.
This is important I think because it is in sample preparation that a) either contamination occurs or b) storage and preparation issues show up. This makes me think they will determine whether XMRV is there or not at this step. It seems to me to be the core step in the process; either XMRV goes on :victory: or it doesn't.
