HIV’s a tricky little bugger. Its size can vary up to 3x, so it’s deceptively difficult to figure out what it looks like. Knowing what it looks like can be really useful, so we can hang its photo up in post offices and banks: WANTED posters and whatnot. So a bunch of scientists from the UK and Germany had a go at making a 3-D model of the thing.
Killer sushi. Looks like some kind of weird new fusion food sushi, perhaps a chunk of tandoori chicken in the middle, surrounded by an assortment of fish egg, and wrapped in blueberry-egg crêpe. No wonder it’s bad for you.
