Emerging Viral infections

Created for Creative Reactions, Pint of Science

Based on the research of Dr Lydia Drumright. This piece features the viral structures of the five most frequently studied emerging viral infections investigated by Drumright. These are Norovirus, HIV, Influenza, Hepatitis C and Hepatitis E. The different colour combinations of the viruses show the genetic variation between different populations of the same virus. The networks within the viruses represent person-to-person transmission networks and give an indication of the infectiousness of each strain.
