In the relatively few decades since the introduction of HIV into the human population variants of the virus have diverged to such an extent that were the discussion about something other than viruses said variants could easily be classified as different'species. This book will consider these evolutionary variations as well as the different and at times opposing theories attempting to explain them. It will compare and contrast the ways in which the immune system and drugs affect the viruss evolution and the implications of these for vaccine development. The issue will be explored and explained through ecological genetics which postulates'that'all living organisms have besides rivals enemies. This is divergent from the more traditional school of population genetics which emphasizes that evolution occurs among rival species (or variants thereof) that compete'for niches or resources in a fixed unreactive environment. Both models will be formulated'using mathematical models which will be included in the book. Finally it will consider the possibilities for designing a vaccine that blocks HIV from escaping thThe HIV Infection model. The CTL Model. Simulating an HIV Infection In Vivo. The Escape Formula.
