Awesome... now, perhaps, they will have a chance at defeating a few of the generic nasties, like Mare Reproductive Loss Syndrome!

Yes, I thought that was great (I am weird enough to have Thoroughbred set as one of my Google alerts).

Since one equine disease is quite similar to AIDS (but does not jump species), maybe access to this knowledge will also help stop one of our worst human tragedies.

There's a cat disease (not the same one) like that too iirc. Wonder if they've been sequenced yet.
