Murine norovirus (MNV), computer model. This image was created using molecular modelling software and data from cryo-electron microscopy. It shows the outer protein shell of the virus (blue, yellow, green), known as the capsid. MNV belongs to the norovirus group of viruses, which are a major cause of non-bacterial gastroenteritis in humans. MNV infects only mice. Cryo-electron microscopy images specimens at a temperature of minus 150 degrees Celsius. It fires beams of electrons at multiple angles creating 'slices' of data that are reconstructed into 3-D models on computer.
