Abstract

The Phylogenetics and Networks for Generalized HIV Epidemics in Africa consortium (PANGEA-HIV) is an international partnership to use viral sequence analyses to assess the transmission of HIV in Africa. The aims of PANGEA-HIV include to sequence 20 000 total HIV genomes from several African study sites, with every genome sequence linked to clinical, demographic, and epidemiological data; and to direct the development of phylogenetic methods to address key challenges and opportunities in measuring, understanding, and controlling HIV transmission in generalised epidemics.
