Why does Coronavirus genome contain poly A region at the 3' end in GenBank? [duplicate]
If you look at the Coronavirus genome below, it contains poly-A region at the end. I know that the viral RNA contains a poly-A tail. But, the genome in GenBank is stored in cDNA format. That means the ...
Virus genome: protein inside another protein
The genome sequence for the GenBank virus JX869059.2 (a human betacoronavirus) contains, among others, two proteins: N protein (range 28566..29807) and Orf8b (range 28762..29100). The interval for ...
