The Mechanism for Genetic Recombination in the Avian Retroviruses
The purpose of this brief review is to discuss in the context of recent experimental data, the possible mechanisms involved in generating the high frequency of recombinant virus observed after coinfection of cells with two genetically different avian retroviruses.
