Better Understanding of HIV Epidemic Through Evolutionary Lens

Better Understanding of HIV Epidemic Through Evolutionary Lens | Health, HIV & Addiction Topics in the LGBT Community | Scoop.it

With the abundance of sequencing data, scientists can use ever more powerful evolutionary biology tools to pinpoint the transmission and death rates for epidemics such as HIV, which has remained elusive to a cure. Reconstructed evolutionary trees, called phylogenies, can trace a family of viral mutations over time. When combined with epidemiology, tree construction can allow for great insight into the dynamics of disease transmission and how a pathogen eludes its host to spread infection.

The case against HIV

The case against HIV | Health, HIV & Addiction Topics in the LGBT Community | Scoop.it

Many facts show that HIV/AIDS theory is wrong. Several dozen books have discussed various reasons for not believing HIV/AIDS theory.
