that depends on the kind of virus.

biological ones replicate by infecting other healthy cells and forcing those cells to make copies of the virus

A virus will replicate within a host cell.

A virus replicates its DNA in a cell when it infects the host

Viruses replicate by hijacking a host's cells. The virus inserts its own RNA sequence into the host cell's nucleus, forcing it to replicate the virus until the host cell dies.

The preferred term for the reproduction of a virus is replication. They replicate.

Virus cannot replicate it self. It should enter into a host

Viruses replicate fast and mutate easily.

Lysogenic is when the virus enters and binds into the hosts DNA and one could replicate slowly or two when the virus sense the host cell is about to die, the virus will go into lyic cycle and replicate and kills the host cell.

Without a host cell a virus can not replicate, so, yes, a virus needs a host cell.

A prophage is made up of proteins that replicate a virus within a cellular structure. The virus does not disrupt the cellular structure of the bacteria, and waits for the lytic cycle to begin so it can replicate.

because the viruses do not have the ability to replicate themselfs.

When light hits the virus, it breaks the rna inside of the virus. The virus can't replicate successfully when its rna is broken.

Viruses attach themselves to and then replicate inside of a cell in order to replicate itself. DNA viruses replicate in a cell's nucleus while RNA viruses generally replicate in the cell's cytoplasm.

NO. Viruses are are small infectous agents that can replicate INSIDE cells.

Virus hijacks cell's biochemical machinery to replicate it's own dna, because it can't replicate on it's own and it doesn't have metabolism, thus vuruses are not considered to be living organisms.

state why viruses can't replicate on environmental surfaces or in synthetic laboratory medium.

Virus took out the control of the machinery of the host cell to replicate themselves when they infect a cell

a virus is able to replicate itself bu taking over the metabolic activities of the cell it infects essentially saying stop what you are suppose to do and make copies of me. so the virus actually doesn't replicate itself but rather the cell in which it infects does it for it. this occurs during the lytic phase of the virus. sometimes the virus "hides" by incorporating itself within the dna of the cell it infects(causing certain cancers) until it is releases itself and says make me. this dormant phase is called lysogenic.

For a virus to replicate it must insert its own DNA into a host nucleus cell. This newly infected cell finds another host cell to replicate, and a viral infection is produced.

A virus replicates itself inside a cell. It uses the chemicals present in the cell as the raw material for its own reproduction.

The definition according to Google Definitions is: A virus (from the Latin virus meaning toxin or poison) is a small infectious agent that can replicate only inside the cells of other organisms.

A worm can replicate itself and does not need a host for distribution

It will soon replicate and infect the cell so that it dies and that is how you get sick

It depend on the type of virus that you will multiplicate.Chicken Embrions are used for certain type of viruses.Cell culture are used also to replicate viruses.

A virus affects humans by invading a cell. The virus then forces the cell to produce viral material rather than cell material. This causes the cell to replicate the virus rather than itself.

Virus is a small infectious agent than can only replicate inside the cell of other organism .it consist either RNA OR DNA
