About the Image

Ribgrass Mosaic Virus, Computer Model by Ucsf Chimera

Ribgrass mosaic virus (RMV), computer model. This image was created using UCSF Chimera molecular modelling software and fibre X-ray diffraction. It shows 49 protein subunits (translucent green and red) that form the helical structure of part of the virus outer coat. The complete virus contains 2100 subunits. The dark grey coil is ribonucleic acid (RNA). RMV is a plant virus that infects a wide number of crop plants. Fibre X-ray diffraction is used to calculate the molecular structure of long fibrous molecules, such as DNA, RNA, silk and hair, that do not crystalise easily. The technique fires X-rays at the molecule to produce a diffraction pattern which is reconstructed on computer.

About the Artist - Ucsf Chimera

Ucsf Chimera

Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library. Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
