okay, this isn't news

so this isn't news, but i thought it was so cool, i just couldn't pass up putting it on the blog. it's basically a flash animation of one of the sixteen possible models of HIV replication. this one is better than the classical model because it avoids the 2nd jump, which is really thermodynamically unfavorable, but it still fails to explain the virion's diploidy:

the flash video is at the bottom of the screen (i could get it to play on safari, but not fire fox)
