Indeed. And in order to use 'molecular methods', in addition to density gradients, is it or is it not necessary to demonstrate, via electron microscopy, that you have particles with the morphology of a retrovirus in the density gradient?

I'll repeat my previous question.

Did or did not both Gallo's group in the 1984 Science papers, and Montagnier's group in the 1983 Science paper, have or publish visual proof for even ONE SINGLE retroviral particle in the density gradients from which they pulled genetic material and proteins, and then claimed their ownership was 'LAV/ HTLV-III'?
