Bacteria and virus

Why are viruses considered to be nonliving they are not cells, and viruses don't use energy to grow or to respond to their surroundings.
what is th basic structure of a virus the virus is made up of a outer protein coat and genetic material inside.
how do viruses multiply The genetic material directs the cell to produce the virus's proteins and genetic material. These proteins and genetic material are then assembled into new viruses.
what is a virus A small, nonliving particle that invades and then reproduces inside a living cell
what's a host an organism that provides a source of energy or a suitable environment for a virus or for another organism
what are parasites an organism that lives on or in a host and causes harm to the host
what is bacteriophage A virus that infects Bactria
why are Bactria cells different from all other organisms' cells Bactria are prokaryotes. The genetic material in their cells is not contained in a nuleus.
what are the positive roles that bacteria play in people's lives Bacteria are involved in fuel and food production, environmental recycling and cleanup, and the production of medicines.
what is cytoplasm The region of a cell located inside the cells membrane ( in prokaryotes) or between the cell membrane and nucleus ( in eukaryotes) ; contains a gel-like material and cell organelles
what are ribosomes A tiny structure located in the cytoplasm of a cell where proteins are made
what is flagellum A long, whip like structure that extends out through the cell membrane and cell wall.
what is binary fission A form of asexual reproduction in which one cell divides to from two identical cells.
what is asexual reproduction The reproductive process involves only one parent and produces offspring that a identical to the parent.
what is sexual reproduction The reproductive process that involves two parents who combine their genetic material to produce a new organism, which differs from both parents
what is conjugation The process in which a unicellular organism transfers some of its genetic material to another unicellular organism.
what is respiration the production of offspring that are similar to the parents.
what are endospores A small, round, thick-walled,, resting cell that forms inside a bacterial cell
what are decomposers an organism that breaks down large chemicals from dead organisms into small chemicals and returns important materials to the soil and water.
what are the two kingdoms of bacteria. Archaebacteria and Eubacteria
how does bacteria reproduce and survive when bacteria have plenty of food, the right temperature, and other suitable conditions, they thrive and reproduce frequetly.
How do infectious diseases spread from person to person through contact with either an infected person, a contaminated object , an infected animal, or an environmental soure
What is infectious disease An illness that can pass from one organism to another.
what are antibiotics A chemical that can kill bacteria without harming a person's cells.
what is a vaccine a substance that stimulates the body to produce chemicals that destroy viruses, bacteria, or other disease-causing organism
what is toxin A poison that can harm an organism.
how can infectious diseases be treated or prevented get a vaccine
