The last group of viral genes to be transcribed during the viral life cycle; genes consist mainly of those encoding structural proteins. The transcriptional period of the earliest expressed viral genes, mainly encoding transcriptional regulators. The second round of viral gene transcription; most genes transcribed in this round are necessary for genome replication. 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. The cellular synthesis of messenger RNA (mRNA) from a DNA template by RNA Polymerase II (Pol II), originating at a Pol II-specific promoter. The cellular synthesis of messenger RNA (mRNA) from a DNA template. The cellular synthesis of RNA on a template of DNA. The cellular synthesis of either RNA on a template of DNA or DNA on a template of RNA.
