Virus replication. Conceptual computer artwork of viral replication, showing the viral genetic material (lower left) fusing with host DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) inside a cell's nucleus. The host cell reads the genetic instructions and builds new virus particles, which erupt from the cell and carry on spreading the viral infection as the cycle repeats.
