Figure 3

Comparison of quasipecies genetic diversity (assessed by HMR, Panel A) and complexity (panel B) values in samples processed with Taq or HF-2 polymerases in HALT-C baseline specimens. The box plots represent the means and ranges of the HMR and complexity scores for 400 HVR1 clones amplified by each polymerase, for a total of 800 clones (20 patients × 20 clones/patient × 2 enzymes). Error bars represent standard deviations. Significance values above each panel were derived from Wilcoxon Signed Ranks tests.
