If anyone is interested, I haven't seen this posted anywhere here. There's a closed group on Facebook called Klimas' ME/CFS 23andME research tribe. The idea behind it is to pool 23andme results and look for similariities.

You have to be prepared to do the 23andme test if you haven't already and give them your email address. Klimas' office will be communicating directly with participants through email.

This was previously discussed here:

there seemed to be some questions about this group and whether it was legitimately connected to Dr. Klimas

Thanks Kyla, I hadn't seen that before. Probably best if conversation continues on that thread rather than this one.

GOAL: 10,000 genetic international profiles submitted from ME/CFS and Gulf War Syndrome patients. I believe many people with POTS, LYME, FIBRO would all be included as she needs a HUGE genetic base to sort the details from.

Klimas' video:
