New conference on xmrv


Senior Member

The retrovirus community has clearly embraced XMRV, a virus discovered just four years ago. This high level of activity means that there will be many papers on XMRV in the scientific literature in the next year. I’m looking forward to discussing them with the readers of virology blog.

What I love about the people who will be congregating at Cold Harbour is that they are excited by the understanding that they don't know everything!

How cool is that!?!



This was interesting:
Hanna, Z.

XMRV is not detected in Quebec patients with chronic fatigue syndrome


Does this mean that Jolliceur (sp?) didn't/couldn't find it? If they could not, they have been appropriately cautious about broadcasting what they think the implications are. Yay them.
