I understand the difference between the two cycles. However, I was curious to know whether a virus can go back and forth between the two. For example, a virus inserts its dna into a host cell, and begins the lysogenic cycle. And of course it can switch from lysogenic to lytic. But, once the cell bursts, can those newly created viruses infect and only perform the lytic cycle, or can they become dormant again and go through the lysogenic cycle? Thanks.
