The graphs above show the accumulating genetic divergence between pairs of HIV viruses taken from different patients as a function of how long it had been since the viral populations in each pair of patients had shared a common ancestor. The top graph shows sequence divergence within a gene called V3. The bottom graph shows sequence divergence within a gene called p17.

Why do the V3 genes in different HIV populations evolve away from each other more quickly than the p17 genes?
