Today I will be discussing Viruses and how they replicate. Viral Replication is very simple: Just five easy mechanisms! And a key note is that ALL Viruses NEED a host in order to replicate. There’s the Attachment stage, Entry stage, Replication and Gene Expression stage, Assembly, and Release. I will be going through all 5 steps in details. But first, let’s start off with what a virus really is. A virus is a non-living infective chemical agent that consist of a nucleic acid molecule in a protein coat. Since they are considered non-living, they are not classified as prokaryotes. Their nucleic acid, or genome, can be a double stranded or single stranded DNA or RNA.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
