1. a protein that degrades double stranded DNA (DNase, tube 1)
2. a protein that degrades single stranded RNA (RNase, tube 2)
3. a protein that degrades other proteins(protease, tube 3)
You add some of your novel genome to tubes 1, 2, and 3. The genome is degraded in tubes 2, but not in tube 1 or 3. Based on your knowledge of genome types that have been found in viruses, what could the genome's composition be?
