Retroviruses

Nature:

Retroviruses are responsible for many deadly diseases including cancer, leukaemia and AIDS.  Retroviruses, unlike typical viruses, are RNA viruses. An enzyme in retroviruses transcribes their RNA into a DNA molecule that can integrate with a host's DNA. Once in a host cell, a retrovirus can take control of the cell's machinery and replicate itself.
