    Acellular organisms are not organisms at all, but rather viruses. Viruses are not living organisms, though they sometimes behave as though they were. They are merely particles of genetic material and other organic compounds folded together into a membrane like that of a cell. What makes acellular particles different from other celled organisms are; they cannot divide, they cannot reproduce on their own, and they lack the ability to synthesize proteins. All of these things are done by even Prokaryotic (one-celled) organisms and is the basic metric by which we measure life.
