Brief description HIV is a rapidly evolving virus, and within an infected individual it continually acquires new mutations and joins together mutations by recombination. We have developed a novel system for studying recombination, and find that different individuals have different recombination rates, which may contribute to why some individuals survive longer. This project aims to identify the mechanisms responsible for differing recombination rates and how we can alter these to improve patient outcome.
