Immune-mediated positive selection drives human immunodeficiency virus type 1 molecular variation and predicts disease duration
Howard A. Ross and Allen G. RodrigoThey show here that the broad genetic diversity of HIV-1 in an infected individual is a consequence of site-specific positive selection for diversity, a likely consequence of immune recognition. In particular, the extent of positive selection appears to be a good predictor of disease duration.
