The Identification of a Novel HIV-1 CRF01_AE/B Recombinant Based on Near Full-Length Genomic Analysis in Yunnan Province, China.

Recombination contributes substantially to the genetic diversity of HIV-1. Recently, many kinds of circulating recombinant forms (CRFs) and unique recombinant forms (URFs) were identified in China, especially in areas with multiple subtypes of HIV-1 circulating. Yunnan, which borders the "Golden triangle" region of South China, is an epicenter of HIV-1… (More)
