    + sense viruses / lytic viruses

    Are all lytic viruses + sense, allowing them to immediately have their nucleic acids translated? Also, are all + sense viruses lytic? ALSO, are all bacteriophages lytic, since they must actively break down the bacterial cell wall? Or can they be lysogenic before becoming lytic?
