Featured Article: Variation in proviral content among human genomes mediated by LTR recombination

Human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) occupy a substantial fraction of the genome and impact cellular function with both beneficial and deleterious consequences. In this study, researchers developed a pipeline for identifying HERV variants in a large data set, representing over 100 human genomic populations. The results indicate that HERVs exhibit more extensive interindividual variation than previously recognized, which could have important implications for human physiology and disease. Read more about this topic in a recently posted blog by the authors.
