A cell which has been infected by a virus is known as the host cell of that virus.

A cell which is used in lab techniques such as DNA cloning to receive, maintain, and allow the reproduction of recombinant DNA cloning vectors. The DNA introduced with the vector is replicated whenever the cell divides and the recombinant proteins encoded for by the plasmid are reproduced in large quantities.
