Well, as I said before AFM=Association Francaise contre les Myopathies,
the French muscular distrophy association that  provides the funding
for
the research at Genethon

and the hieroglyphics that follow AFM - come on, nobody recognized 
plate number and position on the plate ( well OK, it may not be true
for all of them but you can see the pattern. If it is not the plate, it is
the tube :-)
