Molecular biology in context

HIV causes a major global disease yet it has a fascinating life cycle that can be used to teach many key concepts in molecular biology. See how the virus hijack’s part of the cell’s protein synthesis machinery to replicate itself.

Using real DNA sequence, the crucial steps of reverse transcription and integration into the host cell’s genome are modeled in this colourful hands-on activity. A great way to revise many aspects of molecular biology!
