Difference between viruses and normal cells

Greetings fellow science enthusiast,

TOday I will explain the main difference between a virus and a cell.

Viruses and cells are two completely different organism.

A virus is very small and cannot be viewed with regular light microscopes. Electron microscopes are required for viewing viruses.

Virus’s do not divide or grow, whereas cells divide and grow regularly.

Viruses are acellular, cells are cellular.

The genome of virsues can be dsDNA, ssDNA, dsRNA, ssRNA, whereas a normal cell is only composed of dsDNA.


THank’s for reading yalll. See you next time!

I am a wandering soul! I enjoy traveling and adventure. I am mostly on WP to read stories from other fellow adventurers and improve my writing skills. I read to seek information and learn about life to understand more about human relations. Feel free to follow and comment :).
