Duplicate plasma samples from 70 ART-experienced subjects were analyzed by both the Antivirogram and PhenoSense phenotypic assays and the...
A nearly full-length genome sequence of an HIV-1 isolate originating from Cameroon, 02CM.3226MN, was found to cluster together with previously reported CRF13 sequences 96CM-4164 and 96CM-1849. Similarity plotting, bootscanning, breakpoint analysis, and phylogenetic trees confirmed similar genomic...
