Mode of reproduction in viruses; describe the mode of reproduction in a virus

– Reproduction in viruses is by replication
– viral replication consists of;
– attachment of viral particles to host cell
– nucleic acid molecule (DNA or RNA) is injected into the host cell
eclipse phase during which the virus cannot be detected in the host cell
– during this phase, there is also synthesis of enzymes needed for replication of viral nucleic into host cell
– replication of viral nucleic acid complement.
– assemble of viral nucleic into host cell
– release of mature viruses into host cell
– lysing of host cell and spread of viruses to other cells.
