Sequence Data

HIV Consensus sequencing

Approximately half of the HIV patient volunteers for the IDB have had part (aa 1-173) of their viral Gag gene sequenced. These data are currently being prepared for submission to genbank. This gene was selected as it plays a central role in the biology of HIV infections and is a major target of the innate and adaptive immune systems.

HIV Cloned sequences

In addition some viral samples have been examined in great detail with several hundred full-length Gag cloned sequences have been depsosited in GenBank with accession numbers FN597659-FN600533. These cloned samples are available by arrangement, e.g.: The figures below show the amino acid differences of these clones to a reference isolate of HIV (HXB2) and also as a phylogram.
