Hiya, welcome back! Long time, no see. It's helpful to us if you also post up what you don't understand about the question. It is difficult to compare viruses to any living form as they don't carry on any metabolic processes of their own. Bacteria are much closer to other life forms than they are to viruses. The only way in which I think off the top of my head is that both bacteria and viruses lack nuclei.

I need to know what are similar about both the structure of viruses and bacteria like together. Do you know what i mean?

I think so. As I said, the only thing they really share is that they both don't have a nucleus. Instead the genetic material (some viruses only have RNA and no DNA) is loose in the main compartment of the 'organism.' That is really all I can think of...

Yes and I will try to answer it. For clarity's sake I'd prefer it if you posted as a new thread on the forum instead of appending it to this discussion. Unless of course it pertains to this discussion...

to try to compare structure of virus and bacteria seem to me as if you wanted to compare, i dont know, very unequal things. Except, perhaps, both have an arrangement of proteins and nucleic acids.
