Scope and Contents

Research on the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the causative agent of AIDS, has shown that complex interactions between virus and host-cell factors govern expression of HIV genes. Controversial data have been accumulating about these interactionsAt this meeting relevant parties met and an attempt was made to untangle the confusion of the names of the HIV genes. This came to fruition later in the year with the publication in Nature of a proposal for a standardized nomenclature.
