supposedly the major link between all of them is they were all affiliated with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
but, the HHMI seems to have affiliations with tons of universities with biomedical research programs. I wonder how significant the connection is?
Researchers don't just work alone and in the dark. My friend who's working on the Human Genome Project has half a dozen colleagues that she shares
data with and presents to and she has 4-6 lab assistants working with her at any given time.
If they were hushing things up, they'd have to go after colleagues AND lab assistants.
