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

Yes, they implant their DNA into a cell. The DNA tells the cell to replicate the virus inside itself. When the cell is full of the virus, it explodes, releasing viruses all around the targeted area.

Cells do not replicate "In DNA". Cells replicate their DNA during the process of cell division.

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.

It needs a host cell(living cell) to replicate the virus's DNA

Many viruses can infiltrate a host's DNA to replicate itself. An example of this is the AIDS virus.

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.

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.

They replicate their DNA during interphase.

replication forks separate and replicate DNA

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.

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

The Strand of genes is inserted into the cells DNA. This causes the cells to replicate the virus

If the DNA did not replicate, daughter cells would not be formed.

Because the living organism has to replicate the DNA that the virus infects the host with. It can't do this if it is a dead organism.

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

AIDS virus belongs to retrovirus category. These type of virus has only RNA as genetic material. They depend on host cell's DNA to replicate.

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.

Replicate DNA and you get DNA. Two from one.

with its tailAbility to use those kinds of cells to replicate themselves based on compatible DNA/RNA and proteins.l

so that there will be two sets of DNA ... one for each new cell. If the DNA doesnt replicate one new cell would have no DNA. and cells need DNA.

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.

A DNA virus has only DNA as its genetic material.

A virus will replicate within a host cell.

The difference between a retrovirus and a RNA virus is that retroviruses utilize an enzyme (reverse transcriptase) to produce DNA, from their RNA, which can be inserted into the host genome. RNA viruses that do not function as a retrovirus skip the DNA intermediate and replicate in the cytoplasm.

DNA must replicate itself before mitotic cell division so that the two new daughter cells have the same amount of DNA, and identical DNA.
