Why is a virus called a parasite of a genetic level?

Because viruses are microscopic particles consisting of nucleic acid molecules – (DNA or RNA), enclosed in a protein shell that can only live inside living cells of the body. By nature, viruses are autonomous genetic elements that have an extracellular stage in the development cycle. Viruses are obligate parasites, as they are not able to reproduce outside the cell (it does not have its own reproduction mechanism). After penetrating into the cell, the virus embeds its DNA in the DNA of the cell into which it penetrated, into the cell genome.
