Re: RNA World?
What is the difference between a DNA virus and RNA virus that is seen today?

Re: RNA World?
Does a RNA virus have enough genes to form a chromosome? Not that they do but is it enough?

Edited by barbara, : No reason given.

Re: RNA World?
Since a RNA virus is a single chromosome then isn't logical to think that since we have 23 chromosomes X2 each parent that our chromosomes are actually RNA viruses linked together with all of their information put into DNA storage?

What does a single human chromosome contain in information?

Can science identify each chromosome for what it does?

Re: Our genome is not a collection of viral genomes
I read that viruses are pure nucleic acid and they are everywhere in the biosphere. How is that different from our DNA that is made of nucleic acid?

A retrovirus that was involved in making the placenta in mammals had to have a complete sequence of genes in order to accomplish it. Correct?

Re: Our genome is not a collection of viral genomes
The protein syncytia from what I understand is the same protein in the formation of shells of egg layers. This retrovirus then should be the same sequence in all egg layers and mammals with a placenta. Correct?

Does anything make sense in genetics sequencing?
