You have isolated the genome from a novel virus and would like to determine its composition. you have three tubes, each containing one of these substance:
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?
a) dsDNA
b)ssDNA
c)ssRNA
d)protein
e)all of the these
