This is exciting! More and more steps are being made to understand HIV, which means more and more steps to helping people.

Sorry, what? They JUST constructed a view of the genome? Is this a story from 1986? It sort of seems like this, uh, should have been done like immediately.

This is terrific,the more we know about the virus the better we'll be at spotting it and treating it.

Especially when close to a quarter of those in America who have HIV/AIDS do not know it. Maybe we can come up with new and better markers of HIV/AIDS.
