Caption: Adeno-associated virus, computer artwork. Adeno- associated viruses (AAVs) are the smallest known viruses to infect humans. They do not cause diseases, and only provoke a mild immune response. Because they incorporate their genetic material into a specific location within the host's genome, they have potential as a vector for gene therapy. The spiky protein coat (capsid, yellow) protects the genetic material (orange).
