Computer simulation of the outer shell of the influenza A virion

Oxford Scientists Simulate Influenza Virus on a Computer

"The team brought together data gathered using X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, cryoelectron microscopy, and lipidomics into what’s called a “coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulation.” This technique allows the model virus to be put through different virtual environments, each having varying temperatures and lipid compositions. The current simulations are still quite limited, but the technique should lead to more complicated tests involving potential therapies and different chemical agents"
