    It looks like the HIV paper is available only with a journal subscription.

    Yes, unfortunately that is true. But Dr. Collins will be on TWiV #133
    to discuss the paper.

    do you have any TWiv discussing HIV-1 virology and life cycle?! please

  • http://www.virology.ws profvrr

    No, we haven’t fully discussed HIV-1 replication on TWiV. You could
    try my virology course lecture, which is at
    http://microbiology.columbia.edu/W3310/018_W3310_10.mp4 – it’s a
    videocast.
