A better look at viruses through code

February 4th, 2006 | Filed under: Biology, Computing, Photography | 3 Comments »

New software developed by Purdue University’s Wen Jiang enables scientists to observe viruses at an unprecedented level of detail.

“While before we could only see virus parts that were symmetric, we can now see those that have non-symmetric structures, such as portions of the one our paper focuses on, the Epsilon 15 virus that attacks salmonella. . .This software will enable a substantial expansion of what we can see and study. We remain limited to observing those viruses that are identical from one individual viral particle to the next — which, sadly, is still only a small portion of the viral species that are out there. But it is a major step forward toward our goal of seeing them all.”
