Question asked by: joeylo

Asked on: 17 Feb 2009

Cells in the body are taken over by the virus in order to do what the virus wants, and that is to replicate its own RNA.

Because they can live forever in the right conditions and do not perform some of the processes associated with life viruses are odd and may be very primitive and a snapshot of how things used to be, halfway between something that is truly living and chemicals that are complex and a stepping stone to life.
