Signature pattern analysis identifies particular sites in amino acid or nucleic acid alignments of variable sequences that are distinctly representative of a query set of sequences relative to a background set. We explore the merits of using signature patterns for analysis of HIV-1 (human immunodeficiency virus type 1) sequences in cases of epidemiological linkage and potential superinfection. For these purposes, query sets are viral sequences that are all derived from one HIV-1 infected… CONTINUE READING
