Caption: This model of HIV is the most detailed 3-D model of the virus ever made. It summarizes the results from scientific publications in the fields of virology, X-ray analysis and NMR spectroscopy. The depicted spatial configurations of proteins found in HIV particles are in strict accordance with their known 3-D structures. This image relates to the 2010 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge appearing in the Feb. 18, 2011, issue of Science, published by AAAS.
