Reverse transcription. Computer artwork showing a viral reverse transcription enzyme (silver) producing a DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) molecule. Reverse transcription is the process of producing DNA from the instructions contained in a strand of RNA (ribonucleic acid). Many viruses, including HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), consist of a core of RNA, and this reverse transcription is how HIV infects human cells.
