The virus we work with (hepatitis B virus) encapsidates a pregenomic RNA
which is reverse transcribed WITHIN the virus capsid to give the partially
double-stranded DNA genome.
My question is - What other viruses demonstrate intravirion replication of
their genome as opposed to ex virion synthesis then encapsidation?
I suspect caulimovirus (another pararetrovirus) does this but am curious
as to what other viruses utilize this strategy.
