Endogenous proviral sequences are found within the genomes of most species, which provides a record of viral infection over evolutionary time. In humans, some of these sequences are fixed, while others are insertionally polymorphic between individuals. I am interested in identifying novel proviral insertions, as well as investigating if those proviral insertions correlate to specific disease states.
