"Defining the genetic markers that predispose patients to different autoimmune diseases with a suspected infectious trigger would be an important contribution to defining the underlying disease pathogenesis."
If you have more research that you would like to share, please do so in the comments. It's hard keeping up with all of the research for dozens (if not hundreds) of illnesses, which is why I focused on Autoimmunity as it covers a number of diseases (including Chronic Lyme Disease). But the more research the better! Comment away!
