Virus, conceptual computer artwork. Viruses contain a core of genetic material, either DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) or RNA (ribonucleic acid) surrounded by a protein coat, or capsid, and sometimes an outer glycoprotein envelope. The spikes on the surface, here represented by pincers, are used for recognising and binding to the host cell.
