Hi

Does a viral gene have introns?

I'm studying human cytomegalovirus (human herpesvirus 5).
There are UL genes and US genes.
I'm not sure they have introns.

Also, where can I find out if they have introns?



Thanks,

One plant virus has intron.
Maybe you could look for genome of your virus at ncbi (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/. It will tell you if that virus has intron or not.
