At least one can study cell cycles easily with even a basic lab. Good textbook case study.
Yes, exactly.

That paragraph reads like you just found a thesaurus. You could have said what you said in 1/4th the space

From my collegiate/med courses such as microanasthesiology, quantum virologenics, and macro... I would have to disagree that bacterium sizes in relation to viral counterparts produce similar pathogenicity/virulence...especially not through integration/IGG mimics which induce competitive inhibitions and cofactors! I don't believe this denotes types of basal/rudimentary immune complexes due to depth atrophy of lymphatic/ganglionic structures that host a large virus. No way this virus most likely has intermed hosts with a final stage of maturity at a parasitic amoeba/protozoan, similar to many nana/capsular bacterium that are water borne!

Wrong. A virus has to be able to attach to a cell wall first before injecting RNA/DNA, and many times it is VERY specific about what species and cell type it needs to start replicating.

"It is bigger than some bacteria," explained Professor Jean-Michel Claverie, from Aix-Marseille University, Marseille, France.

Is it just me or does this quote make it seem less scary somehow? and did it really need a professor to say that?
