New research identifies a molecular mechanism that the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) appears to utilise for generating random fluctuations called 'noise' in its gene expression. The study, published by Cell Press in the April 20th issue of the Biophysical Journal, pinpoints the likely source of HIV gene-expression noise and provides intriguing insight into the role of this noise in driving HIV's fate decision between active replication and latency...
