Retroviruses do not follow central Dogma. Comment.

Answer :

Central Dogma is the process of transfer of information within the genes to DNA than RNA and finally to the proteins. Retroviruses do not follow central Dogma because their genetic material is RNA instead of DNA. This RNA is than converted to DNA by the process called Reverse Transcription with the help of enzyme reverse transcriptase. Hence central dogma is not followed.
