Viral art

Viruses are the smallest pathogens to infect man. For reasons of genetic economy they assemble from a small number of building blocks, using symmetry. The resulting structures are both beautiful and intriguing.
The models on offer here were generated by imaging viruses in the electron microscope. The resulting micrographs were computationally processed to extract the three-dimensional structure at intermediate resolution.
