Viruses

cellular hijackers

A virus infects living cells and forces them to create many new copies of the virus. Viruses are often very simple, composed of a small genome that encodes only a few proteins, including a coat that finds a cell and infects it with the genome. Atomic structures have revealed both the inner workings of viruses and new avenues for the creation of drugs and vaccines to fight them.
