Pariacoto and Hepatitis B virus capsids. (PDB ID: 1f8v and 2vf1)


Virusworld. was hosted since its inception at the Institute for Molecular Virology in 1993/1994 at the dawn of the World Wide Web and was retired on the first week of July 2022.

I was the main author and curator of the web site which was started to disseminate virus depictions based on X-ray crystallography and later on CryoEM data that, at the time, needed larger computers to visualize.

More “Blog” entry may follow to describe further the history of the creation of images and other details.
