A virus is like a Tupperware container. It is abiotic (never living), and just acts as a container storing deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) for that specific virus. First, the virus attaches itself to a living cell. Next, it injects its own DNA into the cell. The virus's DNA instructs the cell to put ALL of its resources into copying the DNA and making more of the same virus. Last, the cell ruptures and the new viruses are set free to repeat the process.
