Bacteriophages are cool as fuck.

They inject genetic material into bacteria cells that literally reprogram the internal factories of the bacterium to start producing more bacteriophages. Hundreds of billions of bacteriophages are formed until the cell bursts, and the new phages go and find more bacteria to fuck up.

Those things are nightmare fuel. They aren't even considered to be a living thing.

Look at how they reproduce.

I'm not sure that's known yet. I mean it's a bit like the abiogenesis question, the mechanics of the thing are pretty complex despite it being a relatively simple machine.

what we do know is that much of the DNA from most living things came from viruses. They're adept at stealing genes and sticking them in other creatures. Some of those transfers actually stick with us.

It's a motor protein. (Also known as Motor City Protein)

Past it, but I wanna delve more in depth into virology, bacteria, and protozoology but there aren't any courses on these this coming semester.

So I'm settling with looking at shit under my microscope.

I don't have the resources at home, but I'd love to see if I could use viruses to inject DNA into fungi to make it more resistance to competitor fungus.

It's just rogue molecules from living cells that forms a sort of key that is attracted to cells that can allow it to multiply. It's just pure function.

It's pure information with a capsid that protect it. That's why virus aren't living things but an obligate parasite.

>viruses aren't even organisms

How much lateral gene transfer does it take to give "life" to a virus? I mean, if a virus is huge and complex enough to get infected by other viruses, where is the line?

The line is currently drawn at having a metabolism and being able to copy your own genetic material. Viruses don't meet the criteria.

Prions aren't viruses man. Though they are pretty similar, they don't rely on genes.
