c) integrase


Retroviruses:
Created double stranded DNA copies from RNA genome
The retrovirus goes through reverse transcription using reverse transcriptase and RNA
the double stranded viral genome integrates into the human genome using integrase
integrase inserts the gene anywhere because it has no specific site
