viral reproduction

id: GO:0016032
name: viral reproduction
namespace: biological_process
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: The process in which a virus reproduces. Usually, this is by infection of a host cell, replication of the viral genome, and assembly of progeny virus particles. In some cases the viral genetic material may integrate into the host genome and only subsequently, under particular circumstances, 'complete' its life cycle.
