3D model of of deadly сoronavirus SARS-CoV-2

Biomedical visualization studio Visual Science has designed the most comprehensive and scientifically detailed 3D model of the SARS-CoV-2 virus at atomic resolution. The model is based on the newest scientific study into the structure of coronaviruses. To create it, Visual Science used the same structural bioinformatics methods in fundamental analysis and drug development.


SARS-CoV-2 particles are pleiomorphic, which means that the virion's shape can differ. But, most virus particles are approximately spherical, with diameters varying between 50 and 150 nanometers.
The surface of the virus particle is randomly covered with ninety copies of protein S, forming "crown." The virus uses these proteins to attach to other cells.




As of May 15, almost 4.5 million cases of infection were registered in the world, more than 300 thousand people died. 
Most of the coronavirus infection cases were registered in the United States: approximately 1.5 million people were infected, and about 87…
