Viruses and Their Replication - Temperate Bacteriophages and Lysogeny

What are the two different viral life cycles?
  • Virulent mode
  • Temperate mode
What is the temperate viral life cycle?

In the temperate mode viruses replicate their genomes in tandem with host genome and without killing host.
What kind of phages are involved in the lysogenic pathway?
Temperate phages
What are temperate viruses?
Temperate viruses can undergo a stable genetic relationship within the host.
What is a lysogen?
A lysogen is a bacterium containing a prophage.
