Yes, interesting combination.  I saw an article on genetic predisposition
to HIV; apparently three mutant genes give different susceptibility to
infection, and heterzygous combinations are more susceptible than
homozygous ones.  Lots of other articles in the online issues, but not
too many on genetic studies like that one.

Thanks again for the url.

Yes, that's the best course of action.  Do you have any mathematically
minded biologist or biochemist in mind?  I would very much like to
fit a team together to make this project effective.
