It doesn't say how it was cloned.

I was glad to hear the NIH was involved in this research. Up to that point and as I was reading, I kept thinking this guy must be on the ILADS side of the fence because he acknowledges the disease is common and wide spread.

The NIH is a little harder for the IDSA to diss and if they begin acknowledging the disease is common and wide spread, then we will start getting more respect and attention.

painted turtle - if you missed the post about the article in Yankee Magazine, read it.

It talks of the biological warfare aspect of this disease so......yes, engineered.

There is also a book out called Lab 257 that talks about this.

I went looking for what "clone" might mean in context of the article and found this discussion. I think this meaning is correct as far as the article is concerned.

A clone of borrelia is when it replicates itself (divides into
two identical "daughter" cells, which absolute replication
of the DNA (linear chromosome and plasmid DNA).

This research is described and well-explained toward the end of the new Pamela Weintraub book "Cure Unknown" which i just finished. It is great and well worth reading.

Actually, painted turtle, it is in fact a bio-weapon--google

plum island to find out a bit more about its creation.

If it is an exact DNA replication (natural or not) then how can it result in a new, more pathogenic, strain? That seems to be what the article implies....
