Default Do you believe our definitions of life should be expanded?

Do you think that our definition of life should be expanded to include nanobes and viruses? Viruses are not consider life because of their inability to reproduce without a host cell, which is odd since many of them posses their own genome. Nanobes, similarly, also posses DNA and a genome, but are incapable of reproduction without a cell host.

Do you think what constitutes life should be expanded or should we continue to consider viruses and nanobes to be inanimate material?
