RNA Viruses

RNA Viruses

This is a module from the Supersite, "DNA From the Beginning." This learning shows how some viruses store genetic information in the form of RNA rather than DNA. The Supersite contains many other animated tutorials on DNA, genes and heredity. The science behind each concept is explained using animations, an image gallery, video interviews, problems, biographies, and links. There are three sections for the Supersite including Classical Genetics, Molecules of Genetics, and Organization of Genetic Material. Key features are the clear explanations of classical experiments and excellent photographs of researchers and their labs.
