    So this is definitely a step in the right direction. I told people that we'll find a cure within the next ten years if we haven't found one using gene therapy, and I'm definitely seeing it now.

    Great news!

    And to think my mom used to say that all the videogames I played would rot my brain.... Little did she know that videogames would help in finding a cure for aids.

    According to Ray Kurzweil, within 40 years we'll have the cure for everything and theoretically be able to live forever.

    Gaymers are awesome! I dated one gaymer and he was so much fun to play tekken with. We would go hours fighting and then have some sweet mildly rough sex after!

    As a scientist (in training) AND a gaymer, who happens to attend the same university where the protein folding game was developed and has an interest in HIV pharmacology research...this article makes me happy. icon_biggrin.gif

    This is an example of how to get publicity with false sensational headlines.

    The virus enzyme was not HIV enzyme. It was a retrovirus. HIV is a retrovirus. But the retrovirus that was used was not HIV.
