Norovirus (formerly Norwalk Virus) capsid. Responsible for the majority of non-bacterial outbreaks of Human gastroenteritis. The genome is (+) sense single stranded RNA. Rendering is colored by radial depth-cue to highlight surface topography. View is along the 2-fold icosahedral symmetry axis. Individual, small spheres are atoms making up the proteins.
