HIV life cycle videos


We have done a lot of talking, auditory clips and a few videos about the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). We talked about anti-retroviral drugs like protease inhibitors that are used against HIV. For further specific information about HIV life cycle, reverse transcriptase and how the drug AZT targets reverse transcriptase, I have posted three short video animations.

  1. Could cells not have evolved without viruses then? Since to go from RNA to DNA you need reverse transcriptase (and this is assuming that RNA was one of the earliest pieces of genetic material).
