A clear and consistent genetic classification of human immunodeficiency virus-type 1 (HIV-1) strains continues to be of great utility in epidemiological tracking of the AIDS pandemic and in vaccine design. It also provides a foundation for detecting any biological differences that may have evolved 
Human immunodeficiency virus: Phylogeny and the origin of HIV-1
TLDR
It is shown that viruses obtained from the Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa have a quantitatively different phylogenetic tree structure from those sampled in other parts of the world, indicating that the structure of HIV-1 phylogenies is the result of epidemiological processes acting within human populations alone.
HIV-1 Genetic Diversity and Its Biological Significance
TLDR
Evidence of some associations of HIV-1 clades with biological features has been found, in spite of the difficulties and limitations of the studies.
On HIV diversity.
TLDR
The great degree of HIV diversity presents challenges to maintaining sensitivity to antiretroviral therapy and to the development of preventive strategies such as microbicides and vaccines.
Molecular Epidemiology of HIV in Asia and the Pacific
TLDR
A phylogenetic tree of representative full-genome sequences of all of the HIV-1 strains in the pandemic is shown, illustrating the genetic complexity of this important pathogen.
Identification of a highly divergent HIV type 2 and proposal for a change in HIV type 2 classification.
We report the complete genome sequence of a highly divergent strain of human immunodeficiency virus type 2 (HIV-2), 96FR12034, identified in France from a patient of West African origin. This
Human immunodeficiency virus‐1 subtypes and antiretroviral drug resistance profiles among drug‐naïve Brazilian blood donors
BACKGROUND: Human immunodeficiency virus‐1 (HIV‐1) genetic variability and its implication on the development of new reagents were investigated by correlating time of infection and resistance to
In vitro selection and characterisation of human immunodeficiency virus type-1 subtype C integrase strand transfer inhibitor resistant mutants
A dissertation submitted to the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of the Witwatersrand, in fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Medicine Johannesburg 2015
Genotypic analysis of HIV-1 coreceptor usage
TLDR
Anti-HIV drugs target essential viral proteins in the replication cycle of HIV, to date mostly the viral reverse transcriptase and protease, but the search for new targets is still necessary.
A cluster of human immunodeficiency virus Type 1 recombinant form escaping detection by commercial genomic amplification assays
TLDR
A novel HIV‐1 recombinant form associated with lack of reactivity or substantial underestimation of viral load by commercial NAT assays is described.

The World Health Organization Global Programme on AIDS (WHO/GPA) is conducting a large-scale collaborative study of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) variation, based in four potential va...
Isolation and envelope sequence of a highly divergent HIV-1 isolate: definition of a new HIV-1 group.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the isolation and envelope sequence of a divergent HIV-1 isolate from a French woman with AIDS reveals that the three viruses are equidistant from one another and that their mutual divergence is similar to what has been reported between the more conventional HIV- 1 subtypes.
Recombination in HIV-1: Update and Implications
TLDR
It is not surprising that HIV-1 recombinants are detected with the greatest frequency in Africa, specifically in regions where many subtypes (or clades) co-circulate, but a continual introduction of new subtypes worldwide could increase the occurrence of HIV- 1 recombination outside of Africa.
The emergence of simian/human immunodeficiency viruses.
TLDR
DNA and protein sequence comparisons reveal uncanny dissimilarities, as well as similarities, among the genetic sequences of these complex retroviruses, thereby giving rise to the notion that primate lentiviruses are participants in "fast-forward" evolution.
Genomic structure and nucleotide sequence analysis of a new HIV type 1 subtype A strain from Nigeria.
TLDR
Several genetic features unique to this HIV-1 variant are presented, including the presence of a 16-bp insert within the primer-binding site, a large Rev open reading frame, a Rev-responsive element that is predicted to form a different secondary structure than described for clade "B" viruses, and the potential to encode a heavily glycosylated Env protein.
Genetic diversity of the envelope glycoprotein from human immunodeficiency virus type 1 isolates of African origin
TLDR
The data presented in this study confirm the existence of several genetic subtypes within the global HIV epidemic and broaden the genetic variability previously observed for envelope subtypes.
Identification of a new human immunodeficiency virus type 1 distinct from group M and group O
TLDR
YBF30 is as distinct from SIVcpz-gab as it is from HIV-1 group M and can thus be considered as the prototype strain of a new human immunodeficiency virus group.
Genetic analysis of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 strains from patients in Cyprus: identification of a new subtype designated subtype I
TLDR
DNA sequences encoding the C2 to V3 region of envelope glycoprotein gp120 of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 were amplified by PCR from uncultured peripheral blood mononuclear cells obtained from patients from Cyprus, demonstrating the extensive heterogeneity of HIV-1 in Cyprus, including the presence of new subtype.
A new subtype of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (MVP-5180) from Cameroon
TLDR
MVP-5180 constitutes a group subtype O of the most divergent HIV-1 isolates yet identified and is important for understanding the natural history of the primate immunodeficiency viruses and for the development of vaccines and diagnostics.
Characterization of subtype A HIV-1 from Africa by full genome sequencing.
TLDR
The prevailing view of HIV-1 subtype A forming a uniform band across the center of sub-Saharan Africa needs revision and it is suggested that the most common subtype in west Africa and west central Africa is the AG recombinant, AG(IbNG), whereas in east central Africa it is the non-recombinant sub type A.
