Flashcards in 2018 Science T01W04 Deck (37):
1

Describe the structure of bacteria. 

All bacteria have a rigid cell wall and contain all their DNA needed to make copies of themselves.

Describe the structure of a virus.

All viruses have a Protein coat (many of which are spiky) and contain some DNA.

How do bacteria reproduce?

Bacteria reproduce by making copies of themselves and dividing into two, identical ‘daughter’ cells

How do virus reproduce?

Viruses are ‘moochers’ – they reproduce by attaching themselves to host cells, injecting those cells with genetic information and using their parts to copy that genetic information so that more viruses are created.

 

Put simply, attaching to a host cell and turning it into a virus factory.

What is bacteria?

Bacteria are single-celled micro-organisms that can exist either as independent (free-living) organisms or as parasites (dependent on other organisms for life).

What happens when you get a vaccination?

Vaccination is considered the most effective method of preventing diseases. ‘Dead’ viruses are injected into a person to stimulate their immune system to build up a resistance against that disease.
