Virus types. Artwork chart showing eleven different virus types and (in the final panel) their relative scale. The comparison image includes a scale bar of 200 nanometres. Each virus image shows two representations of the virus particle, including (where present) the protein coat, capsid, and the core genetic material. Some viruses have surface proteins, others are naked capsids. Some of these viruses affect plants (such as the tobacco mosaic virus), some affect bacteria (such as the bacteriophage), some affect both humans and animals (such as picornaviruses), while others mainly or solely infect humans.
