See on Scoop.itVirology News

We’ve all heard the myths and hypotheses about the origins of the epidemic caused by the HI virus, but a new book, “Tinderbox: How the West Sparked the AIDS Epidemic and How the World Can Finally Overcome It”, sheds more light on where it all began.

 

I’ve covered this before, but it’s a nice review – complete with spoilers like how Beatrice Hahn and team have shown that a chimpanzee SIV from Cameroon is the closest relative of HIV-1 group M viruses.  The gun doesn’t smoke more than that.
