- n. Alternative form of endogenization.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
This process, known as endogenisation, converts an infectious virus into a non-infectious endogenous retrovirus (ERV).
Retroviruses don't have a monopoly on endogenisation.
Such germ-line endogenisation has happened repeatedly in our own lineage - it is the source of all that viral DNA in our genome.
