This is what the Zika virus looks like at the atomic level

Written by . Posted in etc


This is the most detailed map of the Zika virus that we’ve ever seen.Scientists at Purdue University and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases fired electron beams at a frozen sample of Zika to create this image, which maps the surface of the virus at a resolution of 3.8 Angstroms. That’s nearly at the atomic level, smaller than a billionth of a meter. The team published its results in Science on March 31.Mapping Zika could help researchers understand how it enters and infects human cells. You can see the surface proteins in red that allow the virus to do this.Understanding how the virus attacks our cells could help researchers develop vaccines or drugs to stop it, the way they have for dengue and yellow fever, Zika’s viral cousins.
