Supplementary Material

For each subtype/CRF, all available full length sequences were retrieved from the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) HIV Sequence Database ( Using the patient and isolate annotation, where available, multiple sequences representing single individuals were removed to ensure that the dataset representing each subtype/CRF was non-redundant. The fragment of the envelope gene that encodes for gp120 was excised from each full genome and separate datasets generated for each of the subtypes/CRFs studied. This supplementary table details all of the DNA sequences used in this study together with their designated subtype/CRF, genbank accession number, the country of origin and, where available, the year of sampling.
