Genomic Analysis Uncovers New Targets for HIV Vaccine
...findings to aid the search for an HIV vaccine that would
work by boosting the protective effects of one or more of these genes, and help the body's own immune system overcome an infection. One of the genes looks particularly attractive as a vaccine target. The study, published early online by the journal ...

have seven times the length of human genome," illustrates Weigel the extent of the project. The data were evaluated with several specially designed statistical methods, including a variant of machine learning. The result of this painstaking analysi...
