Having a lot of trouble with Microbiology!!!

  1. 0 This is the only class I have taken so far that I just do not understand!!!!

    I need to know examples of the following:

    • DNA Double Stranded Virus:
    • DNA Single Stranded Virus:
    • RNA Double Stranded Virus:
    • RNA Single Stranded Virus:

    This information is not in my textbook and when I try googling the answers I come up with NOTHING! So far the rest of the class has been pretty straight forward, but I can't get ANY information on what these even are!!! Does anyone know where I can find information on this? Thanks a lot.

    I am not taking micro until the fall semester but I just checked on wikipedia. Look up the terms DNA virus and RNA virus then you will find your answers. Hope this helps

    Just FYI, Wikipedia is not a trustworthy site. Anyone can write anything they want. At school we are told to not even look at it let alone use it.

    DNA Double Stranded Virus: Poxviruses (enveloped)
    DNA Single Stranded Virus: Parvoviruses (non-enveloped)
    RNA Double Stranded Virus: Reoviruses (non-enveloped)
    RNA Single Stranded Virus: Paramyxoviruses (enveloped & non-segmented)

    Hope this helps! I pulled the information from my microbiology textbook.

    venusnscrubs: Thanks so much! I wish my textbook had that, I spent so much time looking for these answers!

    As for wikipedia: I agree, I never use wikipedia for fear the info is wrong.

    Look on Khan Academy's website. They have great Microbiology videos! There should definitely be a chapter in your Micro book that classifies the viruses into dsDNA, dsRNA, ssDNA & ssRNA. I know ours was in a separate chapter. Take a look at any related to viruses.

    I've got my notes from last semster, so PM me if you need more examples of viruses, OK?

    Another vote for Kahn Academy website. A very helpful learning tool. I am using it to polish up my Algebra skills.
