DAG for GO:0032774id: GO:0032774

name: RNA biosynthetic process
namespace: biological_process
def: "The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of RNA, ribonucleic acid, one of the two main type of nucleic acid, consisting of a long, unbranched macromolecule formed from ribonucleotides joined in 3',5'-phosphodiester linkage. Includes polymerization of ribonucleotide monomers. Refers not only to transcription but also to e.g. viral RNA replication." [GOC:mah, GOC:txnOH]
comment: Note that, in some cases, viral RNA replication and viral transcription from RNA actually refer to the same process, but may be called differently depending on the focus of a specific research study.

Usage Notes

This is a PROCESS term, so use this term for proteins that are shown to be involved in replicating the RNA genome of a virus.

  • The RNA genome of the virus could be single-stranded like the bacteriophage MS2, or viruses including SARS, rubella and hanta virus.
  • The RNA genome of the virus could be double-stranded like bacteriophage phi6 or viruses like Rotaviruses.
  • It may be possible, depending on the evidence in a scientific article, to select a more specific term. Consider:

Other suggested terms that might be suitable if you are looking at DNA replication
