A discussion of viruses that encode the enzyme reverse transcriptase. We review the replication cycles of retroviruses and hepadnaviruses, and how each copies RNA into DNA, including the baroque methods of priming and template switching. Also included is a discussion of integration and the retroelements in our genomes.
