Caption: Diagram showing the structure of a typical virus. Virus particles, or virions, generally consist of two or three parts: the genetic material made from either DNA or RNA; a protein coat that protects these genes; and in some cases, a lipid envelope that surrounds the protein coat. Also shown are glycoprotein spikes, which function to attach the virus to receptors on susceptible host cells.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
