Real #SARSCoV2 #coronavirus in 3D

Coronavirus, Health, Science

“By identifying different parts of the virus particles and coloring them with artificial colors, we are able to show you, for the first time, real coronavirus in unprecedented detail.”

“Previously, we have visualized scientifically accurate atomistic models of SARS-CoV-2. Now we offer you the look at a real SARS-CoV-2 virion, in 3D. Our scientific collaborators at Tsinghua University scanned SARS-CoV-2 virions with cyro-electron tomography (cryo-ET) to obtain images of the virus in extreme resolution. However, these images were still too noisy to be displayed in 3D. With the help of our colleagues at KAUST, we were able to turn these scans into stunning visualization showing the shape of SARS-CoV-2 virions. By identifying different parts of the virus particles and coloring them with artificial colors, we are able to show you, for the first time, real coronavirus in unprecedented detail.”
