Special Interest Data:
Belgian Transmission Chain


Study of 9 patients with known transmission chain and treatment histories. Includes alignments of env and pol sequences.


Alignment - env 12 env gp41 sequences from 9 patients (Fasta format)
Alignment - pol 16 pol sequences from 9 patients (Fasta format)

  • Alignments provided by authors.
  • Sequences correspond to accession numbers:
    AF338984, AF338990, AF338992, AF338997, AF339013, AF339017 (pol local control sequences)
    AY749169 to AY749181 (pol transmission chain sequences)
    AY749182 to AY749196 (pol local control sequences)
    AY749197 to AY749208 (env gp41 transmission chain sequences)
  • Transmission chain and treatment histories are presented in the primary reference.
