You want an explanation? I'll give you some quick ones. ~~~~~~~~ First off, the LYTIC and the LYSOGENIC cycles are two different life cycles, for VIRUSES. ~~~~~~~~ The LYTIC cycle comes from the word LYSIS, which means "breaking down." Viruses that go through the LYTIC cycle will invade a cell, make copies of themselves inside the cell, and then cause the cell to burst, so that they can come out, and invade other cells. The rhinovirus, which causes the common cold, is a lytic virus. ~~~~~~~~~~~ The LYSOGENIC cycle is a bit different. It's where a virus invades a cell, and then COMBINES its genes, with the cell's DNA. And then every time that the cell divides into two cells, each of the cells will have a copy of the virus's genes. The HIV, which causes AIDS, is a lysogenic virus.

lytic and lysogenic cycles usually occurs in bacteriophages....ex: lytic - T4 phage and lambda can undergo both...lytic stage in nothing but the bacteriophage infects a bacterial cell, releases its DNA into the host..Now the viral particles replicate using the host machinary and forms the head and bacteriophage is formed and the cell is lysed and released out( here there are two different classifications:specialized and generalized transduction) lysogenic cycle ,the bacteriophage releases its DNA into the host which binds with the bacterial DNA and form prophage...this will be maintained in the bacterial cell..and when the bacterial cell divides the prophage is then given to the new bacterial daughter cells and when required it may also undergo lysis and viral particles can be released off..
