New Study Reveals Extensive Retroviral Activity Across Vertebrates | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Despite the extensive research that has been conducted on retroviruses, little has been discovered about the interactions between these pathogens and their vertebrate hosts that have occurred over millions of years.

But by scanning the genomes of dozens of vertebrates, a Swedish research team has been able to construct a record of host-retrovirus interactions and gain new insights into retroviral evolution, diversity, host switching, and the factors influencing retroviral transmission.
