Productive HIV-1 infection requires viral cDNA integration into the host genome, an event catalyzed by HIV-1 integrase. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Demeulemeester et al. (2014) report the existence of natural integrase polymorphisms that retarget viral integration away from gene-dense regions and are associated with rapid disease progression.
