Question

Are viruses considered nonliving because they're are not made of protein

1 Answer

  • No. Firstly, viruses do contain protein capsids, in which DNA or RNA is contained.


    To answer your question, viruses are considered non-living, because the only characteristic they exhibit, usual to the living organism, is multiplication. And that's about it. They cannot breathe, eat and so on.
