Retrovirus by Velica Retrovirus by Velica
Now thats what I call a retroinfection!!! Shazam!




Again, a biology joke. Sorry if its too specific.
Retrovirus (like HIV) are interesting in many ways. One of them is they break the "CENTRAL DOGMA OF MOLECULAR BIOLOGY" [link] by converting RNA into DNA (hence the prefix Retro-)


I'm imagining this virus swiming in someone's fluids at the sound of Blue Monday by New Order.

There is sensuality in retrotransposition. You just need to squint!
