Molecular Retrovirology

Head of Unit: Simon Wain-Hobson

 

The Molecular Retrovirology Unit started out back in the mid 1980s working on the molecular biology of HIV, hence the name. We were the first to publish the sequence of HIV. One of our findings back in 1991 was the phenomenon of retroviral hypermutation (Vartanian et al., 1991). This ensues when human APOBEC3G encounters the HIV genome in the absence of the virally encoded protein Vif.

The Unit is financed by the Institut Pasteur and France’s three major cancer agencies.
