Remarkably this image was produced by a team of scientist. The virion was rendered using 3DSMax for the outer part and VMD for the core shell. This image was a collective work with :John Stone, Ilia A. Solov'yov, Olga Svinarski, Klaus Schulten and Peijun Zhang.
Our rendering as shown in the cover of the scientific journal Nature.
The proof stage of the cover. Notice how the color of the logo changed later from red to yellow.
