Computer model of a Rotavirus particle. The virus consists of an RNA core surrounded by a triple layered capsid. Rotaviruses are probably the most common viruses to infect humans and animals. They are associated with gastroenteritis and diarrhoea - typically infecting the intestines of young children.
