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. https://futurism.com/hiv-scientists-uncovered-the-birthplace-of-the-disease-that-refuses-to-die?fbclid=IwAR0NuD7GLtq6CGEYfWldfuPAmSTYITm3w_kazVas7y6dbzZ5TZkPFoomyW0 http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20151119-we-know-the-city-where-hiv-first-infected-a-human?ocid=fbert
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.
