The outbreak of a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) represents a pandemic threat that has been declared a public health emergency of international concern. The structural proteins of the SARS-CoV-2 Virion are key targets for vaccines, therapeutic antibodies, and diagnostics. The 3D printed structure of SARS-CoV-2 Virion should enable the rapid development and evaluation of medical countermeasures to address the ongoing public health crisis.
Biologic Model of SARS-CoV-2 Virion 3D printed in multi-colored transparent plastic. Virus color-coded to showcase structural proteins (Spike: Yellow, e-Protein: Orange. m-Protein Green, Nucleoprotein; Blue) required for virion assembly.
