Hi Ron, 


I understand the frustration about those images all too well. 
I know that last week the virus was sequenced. That should be the information you need. I need to check if I have the paper or where I found it, will come back to you later, ok?

Onderwerp: [SCIART] My first post here. Covid-19 question.


Hi, all,

 I have contributed to existing conversations, but this is my first conversation starter. I hope I addressed it correctly.

I am wanting to animate a 3D model of a Covid-19 for a demo/pet project. I googled for a while last night for reference images, and technical descriptions. What I found is: basically anything goes. Make up any shape and color theme, and just throw it out to the world...

But that's not what I want to do... I want it to have the correct proportion of glycoprotiens, and m-protiens, etc..

Thank you in advance, for any help, or suggestions to proper research sources!
