Virus, infectious agent of small size and simple composition that can multiply only in living cells of animals, plants, or bacteria. Viruses possess unique infective properties and thus often cause disease in host organisms. Learn about the history, types, and features of viruses. A virus is an infectious non-living particle that cannot survive on its own. The life cycle of the virus is a series of steps that enable the virus to infect a host and replicate itself. Explore virus structure, structure of virus, viral structure types, and functions of virus structure. • The structure of the bluetongue virus core was recently reported & represents the largest structure yet determined to atomic resolution ( Å). • The outer shell of this virus is approximately 80 nm in diameter & the inner shell (core) about 60 nm. • The double-stranded RNA genome of the virus is packed. A virus is a submicroscopic infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of an organism. Viruses infect all types of life forms, from animals and plants to microorganisms, including bacteria and archaea.

Virus Characteristics. Viruses can be extremely simple in design, consisting of nucleic acid surrounded by a protein coat known as a capsid is composed of smaller protein components referred to as capsid+genome combination is called a nucleocapsid.. Viruses can also possess additional components, with the most common being an additional . Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library. Size. Viruses are usually much smaller than bacteria with the vast majority being submicroscopic. While most viruses range in size from 5 to nanometers (nm), in recent years a number of giant viruses, including Mimiviruses and Pandoraviruses with a diameter of micrometers (µm), have been identified. Virus: Structure and Symmetry. Virus are very small infectious agents with size ranging from nm in diameter. Viruses are non-cellular entities so they are also called as particles. Virus lacks their own independent metabolism and cannot replicate outside the host cell. So they are also called as obligate intracellular parasites.
