  • a Plasma and CVL samples were selected during the first 2 weeks that viremia was detectable. For each sample, both the number of days since the first positive fingerstick test for HIV-1 and the number of days since the last negative fingerstick test are listed. Clinical measurements of the HIV-1 load in plasma and the CD4 count are shown, as well as the HIV-1 quantification in RNA extracted from both plasma and CVL using qRT-PCR. The mean depth of HIV-1 genome sequencing for each sample is shown, and the sequencing depth across the HIV-1 genome is shown in Fig. 4.
