The viral nucleic acid (Either DNA or RNA) has the genetic codes for the synthesis of proteins to produce new viruses, i.e, virus' s genome.
When a virus finds a host cell, the nucleic acid is injected into the host cell.
The viral nucleic acid invades the nucleus and instructs the cell to make proteins which are assembled to produce further virus cell.
