HPV Viral Genomics

This study is designed to interrogate the relationship between sequence changes in the HPV viral genome and carcinogenicity.  The simple question is “Why is HPV 16 so uniquely carcinogenic?” High-throughput next-generation sequencing methods are being used to study HPV 16 variant sub-lineages among women with cancer and CIN 3 in comparison to women with benign HPV infections.
