in RNA viruses (RNA to RNA)
and retroviruses (RNA to DNA)
Living things are what their proteins make them.
utilizes RNA polymerase to bind DNA and INITIATE the translation process.
this synthesizes the RNA molecule using the codes on DNA as a guide or template DURING TRANSCRIPTION. (hint - more multipurpose than DNA 3P used in Replication)
needs no helicase
binds, unwinds, synthesizes
