Alphafold 3D structure models 47841 predicted structures are available in the ViralZone datasheets via the 3D Models tab. These structure predictions were made by Alphafold for eukaryotic viruses are provided by Jason Nomburg, Nathan Price and Jennifer Doudna (biorxiv). These can be viewed in the ViralZone datasheets via the 3D Models tab. All available structures are sorted by virus.

The complete ViralZone image library in vector graphics image All images in the virus information sheets are now available in SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format. This allows images to be scaled in size without loss of quality. All the pictures can be copied, redistributed and modified by everyone as long as the source is cited (CC-BY licence). Moreover, virion and genomes of viruses infecting humans are now interactive, (example).
