BIOLOGY
Asked by Sarah

Some viruses attack cells by inserting their own DNA into the host cells' DNA. Why might it be simpler for these viruses to attack prokaryotic cells than eukaryotic cells?

Hi Sarah! The reason that comes to my mind is that prokaryotic cells do not have a nuclear membrane, which eukaryotic cells do. Hope it helps!
