The Story

Thousands of people say they are suffering from the rope worms, including those with Lyme disease, Autism and Morgellons:

Two papers were written about the rope worms:
http://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1301/1301.0953.pdf
http://arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1301/1301.2845.pdf


Initial DNA tests showed 10% human and bacteria DNA with 90% unknown.
DNA full genome sequencing is $30,000 at the top US genomics lab for one sample. The full genome data will answer the question what the rope worms are.
When the rope worms leave the body many symptoms disappear. Nobody knows what the rope worms are. The project will collect the full genome DNA data to answer the question what the rope worms are.
