SNP Studies, Next-Generation Sequencing Target HIV | GenomeWeb

As fast-paced as HIV research is, HIV is an even faster-moving virus. Recently, new genomics-based technologies are turning up in the HIV/AIDS field. Ultra-deep pyro-
sequencing may replace the Sanger method as the standard way to detect low-level, and often drug-resistant, strains of HIV that a person might have. Also, genome-wide association studies are highlighting why people react differently to early HIV infection. The goal of both these new approaches is the same as a lot of research in HIV and AIDS: new and better therapeutics.
