Virulence is a pathogen's or microbe's ability to infect or damage a host in the context of gene the word virulent derives from the latin word virulentus, meaning a virulence can be defined as the host's parasite-induced loss of fitness the virulence factors of bacteria are typically proteins or other molecules that are.
