Caption

Ebola virus particles, coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM). This elongated virus belongs to Filoviridae, a family of viruses that cause viral haemorrhagic fevers. Each particle has an ribonucleic acid (RNA) genome, within a nucleocapsid (pink). The capsid is surrounded by an envelope (pale green) covered in glycoprotein spikes (dark green). A number of major outbreaks of Ebola infections have occurred in equatorial Africa since 1976, causing severe and frequently fatal symptoms. These include high fever, haemorrhaging and central nervous system damage. There is no absolute cure for the disease, but with excellent supportive therapy, around three-quarters of victims recover. Magnification: x71,000 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
