Image of the Month: Cryo-electron microscopy of Venezuelan equine encephalitis

Molecular model based on cryo-electron microscopy of Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus at 4.4 Å resolution.  The structure suggests mechanisms for nucleocapsid assembly, virulence attenuation, host recognition and neutralization.  Photo courtesy of Dr. Wah Chiu, professor of biochemistry.
