    Good questions; I sent this paper to Mohsen, although I believe I've sent it to him in the past. :)

    Another Wednesday and another ScienceWednesday-post from OMF.

    This time they are looking at the "omes" in biomedical research and gives an introduction to Genome, Transcriptome, Proteome, Metabolome and Microbiome.

    This week's #OMFScienceWednesday post

    Many of you have been asking questions about our red blood cell research. For this #OMFScienceWednesday, we examine the difference between RBC shape and RBC deformability, and how they relate to blood flow.

    @Kalliope, would you put it link to the OMF website, as well as the Facebook link? That would help the brain-fogged members who are not on Facebook, which I am guessing will be more of us.

    Yes, I'll try to remember that. Usually I think it is posted first on Facebook, and after a while on their website. But I agree both links should be added :)

    New Science Wednesday Post from OMF.

    Do infections lead to lasting changes in immune or metabolic function that lead to symptoms, or is the pathogen still present? This #OMFScienceWednesday, OMF discusses recently funded research into addressing this central question in ME/CFS.
