If viruses infect bacteria, what affects viruses?
Why the virus name is Sputnik
Why the Virus name is “Sputnik”? Because it’s the first virus that may be a parasite of another virus. Once it reproduces in a cell infected by the more giant more abundant virus, its action impairs the replica of mama virus particles.
The cluster sequenced Sputnik’s genetic code and discovered that a variety of its gene sequences are the same as those found in a broad survey of genetic material taken from oceans all over the world. This means that a full class of viruses would possibly exist that infect different viruses.
Whether viruses are alive
This discovery raises a debate about whether viruses Are alive. Viruses don’t seem to be considered as living organisms because they Lack their own cellular structure and also the ability to metabolize food. Traits are common to all identified varieties of life.
