parvo’s genetic material


a: parvo’s genetic material ~
b: an hour-long stroll around your neighborhood


"Tucked inside a protective protein shell, or capsid, parvoviruses contain a single DNA strand of about 5,000 nucleotides. If parvo's genetic material is like an hour-long stroll around your neighborhood, a bigger virus like herpes is equivalent to walking from St. Louis to Columbia, Missouri."
