What is an organism carrying another organism to the host called?
This question was addressed to me in an interview for internship.
This question is from Population Interactions-2 in portion Organisms and Populations of Biology – Class 12
The correct option is (b) Vector
The explanation is: The organism carrying another organism to the host is called a vector. A vector itself does not cause disease but transfers the pathogen to host. Some major vectors are plasmids, cosmids, viral vectors, and artificial chromosomes.
