    you wrote transirption instead of transcription.

    My grade improved by 60% after watching this video. Thank you. by the way, I believe viruses are alive. MUTATION!!!!!

    OMG! thanx this video really helped! I'm a Clinical Laboratory Science student and I have Virology course this semester, our professor recommended this video to us! she said 'look for Bozeman Viral Replication video it's really great"
    that's exactly what she said 😉
    again thanx a lot :*

    no shit, shitlock. 

    "it's great from the viruses side!" 
    yeah well that virus isn't alive and i am. you know what else is also undead? this one kind of virus called a y chromosome. without which the herp wouldn't exist.

    Why doesn't RT reverse transcribe the RNA in the protein capsid extracellularly?

    I never get sick anymore.  When my wife and kids get the cold, I pull out without any infection.  Could it be that my defensive system has developed to such a point that I have become ineffaceable?   If so I thank our public schools and high exposure to viruses.

    What is the actual genetic material the virus drops of into the host cell

  • Reply Sof. January 22, 2015 at 4:48 pm

    So why are we able to produce anti-AIDS or anti-HIV by targeting reverse transcriptase?

    Can you create supplements (practice questions that are intricate) for AP Biology? You would save the lives of many students. Thus you will acheive being a biology teacher and a doctor. You're welcome 🙂

  • Reply Dunja T July 2, 2017 at 10:15 am

    But there is no explanation about replication of other RNA viruses. HIV has a specific replication, but you haven't talked about viruses with + sense RNA and – sense RNA.

    So we need to maintain our body hydrated not to let the virus get off the lytic cycle until it's completely gone?

    Just wanted to correct you on the RNA viruses- you make it seem like most or all RNA viruses have reverse transcriptase…. which is incorrect. Only 4 viruses have that: Reo, Arena, and Retro viruses. All other viruses have RNA dependent RNA-Polymerase!

  • Reply Evelyn Duong February 9, 2019 at 7:43 pm

    DNA Virus explanation was not bad, RNA was explained poorly because you didn't take into account pos/ssRNA/dsRNA and neg/ ssRNA/dsRNA…and not all RNA viruses are retroviruses. A retrovirus is a TYPE of RNA virus

  • Reply Siri Sudweeks March 5, 2019 at 9:42 pm


  • Reply Ben Nguyen April 21, 2019 at 5:14 pm

    In the first case, how does the viral dna get into the nucleus, isn't there any mechanism inside the cell to detect foreign dna? Does it live alongside the existing dna, or does insert itself into the host dna?

    And how does the messenger rna get triggered to code this new dna? For example, if the vast majority of human dna is non-coding, what tells the rna that this viral dna is to be coded?
    BTW, for a great discussion on how RNA can change DNA (AIDS and cancer), I recommend the Solvable podcast ("AIDS") and Revision History ("Obscure Virus Club")!

    When dna of the virus is inside the nucleus but the protine coat is in the cytoplasm do the coat take that same DNA that is inside the nucleus??? Or it will produce their own DNA
