In collaboration with the members of Department of Microbiology, Tokushima University (Tokushima, JAPAN), I am currently studying molecular and biological bases for the most evident and important characteristics of HIV-1 such as species-specificity, mutability, adaptability, and diversity. For this ourpose, we are also doing comparative anayses of various HIV/SIVs. Our goal is to clarify mechanisms for replication and pathogenesis of HIV-1 in vivo. I am acting as a Specialty Chief Editor of Frontiers in Microbiology-Virology to provide the excellent platform for various virological studies.
