viruses are characterised by many unique features that set them apart from other groups of organisms which find a place within Microbiology. A discussion on the nature of viruses and their relationships to other organisms was fashionable 10–20 years ago but no satisfactory definition ever emerged. No doubt as our knowledge of viruses expands still further some insights into their relationship may emerge.
