Correlation between a phenotypic assay and three bioinformatic tools for determining HIV co-receptor use.

Abstract

The predictive value of three genotypic methods to determine HIV-1 co-receptor usage was assessed in 83 plasma specimens taking as reference the results obtained using a recombinant phenotypic assay (Phenoscript). The best concordance was found for webPSSM, followed by geno2pheno and wetcat (85.9, 71.8 and 70.5%, respectively). Less than 5.1% of phenotypic… (More)
