Comparison of quasipecies genetic diversity (assessed by HMR, Panel A) and complexity (panel B) values processed with Taq or HF-2 polymerases, in 12 HCV/HIV co-infected samples treated (N = 7) or not treated (N = 5) with HAART. The box plots represent the means and ranges of the HMR and complexity scores for 240 HVR1 clones amplified by each polymerase, for a total of 480 clones (12 patients × 20 clones/patient × 2 enzymes). Error bars represent standard deviations. Wilcoxon Signed Ranks tests determined that all differences were not statistically significant.
