The infectious diseases thread.

Recommended Posts

A thread for discussing various infectious diseases, and news associated with them. So Ebola, HIV, SARS, etc.

 

Starting with a couple articles about HIV that came across my FB feed.  90 % of all HIV cases trace back to a strain that comes from Kinshasha/Leopoldville back in the 1920s where it spread out due to rail and other transportation networks.

      What it says on the tin: I know stuff about genetics and biotechnology (especially population genetics and crop biotechnology), so feel free to ask me anything about these topics. If there is something I don't know enough about (human genetic disorders, for instance) I will do my best to remedy that issue or tell you so.
       
      I am also a trainee patent lawyer, so you can also ask questions related to Intellectual Property law. I must, however, stress the 'trainee' part.
       
      Fire away, chaps.
