Manuscript on HIV sweeps and clonal interference posted on BioRxiv

13 Feb

Kadie-Ann Williams and I posted a new manuscript on the BioRiv. It is 30 pages with 28 figures and a supplement of 118 figures! I guess we could call it an HIV drug resistance evolution picture book!

Nowadays, drug resistance evolution is quite rare, but in the late 1990s, HIV populations within patients on treatment were undergoing soft sweeps, hard sweeps, clonal interference and other things. If you like sequence data, you’ll enjoy looking at our pictures!

Title: Drug resistance evolution in HIV in the late 1990s: hard sweeps, soft sweeps, clonal interference and the accumulation of drug resistance mutations

The goal of this paper is to provide examples of evolutionary dynamics of HIV within patients who are treated with antiretrovirals. We hope that the figures in this paper will be used in evolution and population genetics classes. We show a wide variety of patterns, specifically: soft sweeps, hard sweeps, softening sweeps and hardening sweeps, simultaneous sweeps, accumulation of mutations and clonal interference.
