Hepatitis B virus (HBV) particles, computer artwork. Each particle consists of an outer lipid envelope (green) that surrounds a protein nucleopcapsid (purple). Within the nucleocapsid is the virus's DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) genome (red). HBV causes hepatitis B, a disease characterised by inflammation of the liver, which can lead to liver cirrhosis, cancer and death.
