Caption: Ribgrass mosaic virus (RMV), computer model. This image was created using UCSF Chimera molecular modelling software and fibre X-ray diffraction. It shows 49 protein subunits that form the helical structure of part of the virus outer coat. The complete virus contains 2100 subunits. RMV is a plant virus that infects a wide number of crops. Fibre x-ray diffraction is used for long fibrous molecules, such as DNA, RNA, silk and hair, that do not crystallise easily. The technique fires X- rays at the molecule to produce a diffraction pattern. The data is then reconstructed into a 3-D model by computer.
