1. What are the features of viruses?

  • Particles rather than cells, smaller than bacteria, only reproduce inside living cells, in effect all types of organisms, come in all different shapes and sizes, do not have a cellular structure, have a protein coat around some genetic material
  • Protein coats, small, these of other organisms, single cells, chloroplasts
  • Protein coates, genetic material, different shapes and sizes, infects all type of living organisms
  • Have a nucleus, small, reproduce, infect all types of living organisms
