A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

About

Highly-active anti-retroviral therapy has been extremely effective at maintaining low levels of viral load in HIV-infected individuals, but emerging drug resistance is threatening those gains. When therapy is interrupted even briefly, HIV can evolve resistance to one or multiple drugs. Understanding how to stop viral evolution is an important goal of current research. I use HIV-1 protease sequences from public databases to study the dynamics of evolution over a span of nearly ten years, to compare patterns of adaptation in populations that are drug-naive to those that have taken one or multiple protease inhibitors. Using information theory, I show that the amount of information stored in protease sequences of patients that are on drug therapy has been increasing over time, suggesting that they are adapting to the drugs. In comparison, there is no increase in information in the sequences of patients that are drug naive. However, for the virus the increase in information comes at a price: because most of the information is stored in correlations between residues, the sequences are evolving into a more rugged area of the fitness landscape, which could make further evolution more difficult. While the data up to 2006 do not suggest a slowing down of evolution, such a trend may exist in data from later years not analyzed here
