Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Yeast is a microscopic, one-celled organism belonging to the group of organisms called fungi.

Club fungi is any basidiomycete fungus belonging to the family Clavariaceae.

An arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus is a type of mycorrhiza in which the fungus penetrates the cortical cells of the roots of a vascular plant.

 lichens are  composite organisms that arises from algae or cyanobacteria living among filaments of a fungus in a symbiotic relationship

Mycorrhizas are beneficial fungi growing in association with plant roots, and exist by taking sugars from plants 'in exchange' for moisture and nutrients gathered from the soil by the fungal strands.

A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of other organisms

Latency is a time interval between the stimulation and response, or, from a more general point of view, as a time delay between the cause and the effect of some physical change in the system being observed.

Retrovirus is A virus that is composed not of DNA but of RNA. Retroviruses have an enzyme, called reverse transcriptase, that gives them the unique property of transcribing their RNA into DNA after entering a cell.

provirus is a virus genome that is integrated into the DNA of a host cell. In the case of bacterial viruses proviruses are often referred to as prophages.
