End of September 2008: recovery (thanks Capt_Maloche) documents from the Institut Pasteur in Paris, cruel disappointment because there is hardly anything more than what we already knew.
We had a lot of hope for these documents.
3 October 2008: opening of the Laigret section (the article you are currently reading is part of it) on the site to summarize the project a little, with in particular:
16 October 2008: recovery of the unique Laigret patent which includes (for a patent) a lot of biolological indications. It can therefore constitute a good working basis for the first experiments.
16 October 2008: transmission of the patent to the CNAM in Cherbourg and to the media library of the Pasteur Institute in Paris
