A virus is a short piece of DNA (double stranded deoxyribonucleic acid) or RNA (single stranded ribonucleic acid) that codes for a few genes, it is often enclosed in a capsule that protects the nucleic acids. They are invisible to the naked eye and can only be seen with very powerful microscopes.

Within living cells of organisms (animals, plants, bacteria, fungi and archea) they hijack the cell's growth machinery and induce it to make copies of the virus. They viruses then break out of the cell and spread to others (other cells or other organisms. Viruses can remain viable for hours on some surfaces.
