What is the difference between a bacterium and a virus?
bacteria has a cell wall and the virus doesn't also the virus has a protein coat and bacterium doesn't
A pathogenic bacterium is alive while a virus is not.
Active virus is technically parasitic in nature and lie dormant until a host is present so they can reproduce. Active bacterium are present in the air and most are even good. Bacteria is already alive and reproducing.
a virus uses leg-like appendages to clamp onto a cell and a spike or chemical coating to penetrate the cell wall http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-difference-between-a-virus-and-a-bacteria.htm
Bacteria is the plural of bacterium.
There is not a difference between bacteriod and bacterium. Both are bacteria.
bacteria is plural and bacterium is singular
Which is older a bacterium or a virus?
A bacterium is older than a virus from the various sources of records. The virus is believed to have evolved from bacterium.
bacteriophage is a virus which kills bacteria
bacterium do not have membrane boundnucleus/organelles as plants do bacterium are prokaryotes as plants are eukaryotes
Ribosomes are the smallest between mitochondria, viruses, bacterium, and protein. Ribosomes are the building blocks of mitochondria, viruses, bacterium, and proteins.
A bacteriophage is a type of virus that infects a bacterium. Viruses are typically considered nonliving, while a bacterium is a living organism. A bacterium can reproduce by itself, while a virus needs a host in order to replicate. A bacteriophage is much smaller and the term means bacteria eater.
virus. Bacterium are much more complex.
A bacteriaphage (literally bacteria eater) is a virus that reproduces in a bacterium.
A virus is much much much smaller then a bacterium. Virus called phage can infect bacteria.
AIDS is not caused by bacterium. It is caused by a virus called HIV (human immunodeficiency virus)
Clostridium tetani is a bacterium.
A virus runs in a thread, as do all programs. The difference between a generic thread and a virus is that the thread may not be harmful, while the virus generally is.
A virus is smaller than a red blood cell or bacterium.
What is the difference between the conjugation that occurs between paramecia and the conjugation that occurs between bacteria?
in conjugation between paramecia, they simply exchange DNA. Bacterium conjugation happens and the bacterium takes the others DNA.
Influenza is not a bacteria but a virus.
It's a virus
a bacteria is smaller than an animal
Measles is caused by virus.
Protists have a nucleus.Bacteria lacks a nucleus
i have no CLUE
What are the differences between the sugar phosphate arrangement in the backbone of the DNA from the plant mammal and the bacterium?
There is no difference between the sugar-phosphate arrangement in the backbone of the DNA from the plant, mammal, and bacterium. What makes plant, mammal, and bacterium different is the sequence of the DNA nucleotides.
The process by which DNA from one bacterium is transferred to a second bacterium by a virus is called?
It is a bacterium.
No- its a virus.
No. HIV is a virus.
No; HIV is a virus.
A bacteriophage is a completely assembled virus capable of landing on a bacterium and injecting it's genetic material in lysis, or a lysogenic attack. A provirus is a virus that has incorporated it's genetic material into the genetic material of the host for continual replication, thus, " before " the phage. This is the lysogenic phase of viral attack.
The difference between a common animal virus and a retrovirus is that a retrovirus only contains RNA while a common animal virus will have DNA or RNA.
A white blood cell is the biggest then the anthrax bacterium then the influenza virus. Hope it helps! :)
A micro-organism, such as a bacterium, a virus or a fungus, that invades a host and causes a disease is called a pathogen.
What is the difference between prokaryotic cells and
A bacteriophage is a type of virus that attacks bacteria; it is much smaller than bacteria and is not a cell.
no almost nothing is smaller than bacterium
Anthrax is caused by the gram-positive bacterium Bacillus anthracis.
one virus bacterium will multiply in to 16 million in 12 hours one virus bacterium will multiply in to 16 million in 12 hours
Bacteriophage is a virus that attacks bacteria. When bacteriophage typically attaches to the bacterium and then injects nucleic acid into it and then the ghost virus protein stays outside.
MRSA is a bacterium, (methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus), not a virus. It does grow, but not like a virus.
example - Euglena Flagellum - uses it to move, it is made in a different way from a bacterium flagellum (got this off my science homework )alexx :-)
bacterium are prokaryaotic (no nucleus) while unicelluar (possessing a single cell) are eukaryotes. Although they have a nucleus, they are essentially comprised of only a single cell.
