An Illustrated Guide to Vpu

For Casey, care of Ian Musgrave (click for larger image)

Green = New Gene + New Molecular Machinery + New Protein-Protein Interactions
Blue = HIV Originates
Pink = New Molecular Machinery + Gene 'Working in a Different Way' + New Protein-Protein Interactions
Red = Gene 'Working in a Different Way' + New Protein-Protein Interactions
Thank you so much, Ian! hehehe Terrible professor. 'Teaching' things. Bah!

Thanks for doing this.

So each of those arrows is the Hand of God? Sweet! :)

Not a sceptical question in any way, but what sources do virologists use for assaying HIV down the decades?

Abbie, you are indeed a sick Christ-killing Jewess. How dare you use science to back up your claims?

I'll pray for you!

Martin-- Thank Ian Musgrave! He got off his booty and made it! :P Very helpful to have things in pic form!

ian-- Actually, if Behe would have said that in the first place, I would have had to deal with that. But he didnt. Hes just really, really wrong hehehe!

quantok-- Dont you dare be scared to ask a question! Especially that one :) A fellow who is knowledgeable on that very topic reads this blog every now and then (I want him to guest post, but hes busy, being a grown up :P)

I think at this point, they (Betty Korber, at Los Alamos) worked out a computer program that takes into account the different mutation rates of each of the subtypes and gives them individual molecular clocks-- build a phylogenetic tree (off of the pol gene, I think?), trace back the molecular clocks, and BAM! Time-line!

Ill shoot knowledgeable fellow an email to see if he has time to give you a real answer :)

Tyler-- A Christ-killing Jewess with a pit bull that eats baby souls! Get your torches and pitchforks!

"a computer program that takes into account the different mutation rates..."

Gulp! I can't say THAT to a Cretinist: they'll just yell "You weren't THERE!"

Thanks for responding.
