Black Death's Genome Cracked

Catch22RG AIDS? (252 comments)

I find this interesting because the bubonic plague infects the human body by the same means as HIV (by attaching to a receptor on the cell membrane, which is normally responsible for inflammation around cuts/etc.) Perhaps this discovery will be beneficial to AIDS patients.

On a side note, natural selection has made many people of European descent are resistant to HIV. A small percentage are actually entirely immune.
