Adenovirus with DNA January 22, 2009 This image of adenovirus on a silicon substrate was scanned using the nanoManipulator. An adenovirus capsid has disrupted, spilling its DNA onto the surface in a tangle. The portion of the image above a certain height has been made semitransparent by adding an opacity texture. This enables us to see through the image to the icosahedral model of an adenovirus drawn aligned with the virus in the upper left corner. Surface color is according to height. The surface has a slight slope, resulting in uniform blue, gray, and red areas.
