Abstract

In discussing viruses it is convenient to divide them into six classes on the basis how their mRNA is transcribed. The study of plant viruses inspired early molecular biology research culminating in the isolation and crystallization of the tobacco mosaic virus. The crystallized material of RNA viruses consists of RNA and protein. Shape, size and genetic strategy of animal viruses show an astonishing variety. Two of the common features of animal viruses are pointed out: 1. these viruses contain molecules and corresponding genetic information which mimic cellular functions, 2. viruses may integrate into the host genom. Special cases of viral integration causing tumorous transformation are mentioned.
