Study Uses Advanced Gene-Sequencing Technologies To Track Viral Evolution Of HIV

Mutations in HIV that develop during the first few weeks of infection may play a critical role in undermining a successful early immune response, a finding that reveals the importance of vaccines targeting regions of the virus that are less likely to mutate...
