Virus

DNA or RNA in a protein cover; viruses can only reproduce inside cells because they have few genes and no independent metabolism; they replicate their nucleic acid by exploiting the structures and enzymes of the host cell.

Virus

Any application which destroys the computer's integrity without the user's knowledge. Most viruses attach themselves to other programs and begin corrupting data when the 'host' program is activated.

virus

A computer programme that replicates by copying itself. The term virus is often used to describe a virus or a worm.

virus

(Variation and inheritance) ultramicroscopic non-cellular organism that replicates itself inside the cells of living hosts

Virus

An ultra-microscopic (one dimension less than 200 µm) organism. Viruses cannot reproduce alone but must first infect a living cell and usurp its synthetic and reproductive facilities. Responsible for some diseases in plants and animals.

Virus

A infective agent with a specific structure and able to cause its own multiplication after infection of specific cell

virus

Microscopic particle that contains genetic information, but must invade a cell to reproduce.

Virus

A self-replicating code segment. Viruses may or may not contain attack programs or trapdoors.

Virus

[automobile] Virus was a French Automobile. Pierre Brissonnet was the owner of the Garage Renouvier in the Rue de Renouvier in Paris. He built cyclecars between 1930 and 1935. Designer of the cars was a certain Renaud. The cars had front-wheel drive and an Two-stroke engine with 350 cc. The cars raced at the Bol d`Or. == Notes == ...

Virus

An infectious particle composed of a protein capsule and a nucleic acid core, which is dependent on a host organism for replication. A double-stranded DNA copy of an RNA virus genome that is integrated into the host chromosome during lysogenic infection. (See Coat protein, DNA, Genome, Host, Nucleic acid, RNA, Tumor virus.)
