Sequence Alignments for Salazar et al.
Deciphering human immunodeficiency virus type 1 transmission and early envelope diversification


Set of 129 full-length genome sequences from 12 patients in early infection, plus longitudinal sequences from 3 patients.


  • Patient Alignments (click here)
    • This zip archive contains a fasta-formatted file of aligned sequences from 12 patients, a consensus sequence for each patient, and 8 reference sequences (4 from subtype B and 4 from subtype C).
    • The 12 patient codes are CH40, CH58, CH77, 226_2, 396_0, SUMA, TRJO, WEAU, WITO, ZM246F, ZM247F, and ZM249M
    • Sequence names are formatted as follows: PatientCode_SequenceNumber.
    • Consensus sequences are labeled as PatientCode_con, e.g. CH40_con.
    • Because patient ZM247F was infected by 2 variants, 2 consensus sequences (ZM247FB_con and ZM247FA_con) were made accordingly.
    • Transmitted sequences are labeled CH58_transmitted and CH77_transmitted.
    • The qualifier _fl indicates a full-length sequence.

  • Longitudinal Alignments (click here)
    • This zip archive contains 3 fasta-formatted files of within-patient sequence alignments from CH40, CH58, and CH77. A consensus sequence or the transmitted isolate is included for each patient.
    • For sequences in longitudinal samples, time when sample was drawn is labeled as dN_, where N is the number of days elapsed since screening.
