What are the differences between Eukaryotic, Prokaryotic and Viral Genome?
- Eukaryotic and Prokaryotic are DNA and Viruses can be DNA or RNA.
- The genome for a prokaryote is circular.(bact.)Don't have Introns & Exons they go through transcription and translation at the same time.
- The genome for a eukaryote is multiple and linear.Ribozymes cut out the Introns and put the Exons back together. A 5'cap & polyA tail is mRNA.
- The genome for viruses is Big for DNA and Small for RNA.They transcribe multiple genes with one promoter. Their genes overlap for different proteins.
