Scientists from the 2010 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge got a look at a unique representation of HIV. Ivan Konstantinov and his team at the Visual Science Company in Moscow spent months combing through the latest research, compiling data from more than 100 papers and assembling the information into a coherent image of a 100-nanometer HIV particle. What resulted was the winning image and gave us all a very haunting look at HIV and its structure. HIV is a very complex virus that few of us get to see close up. Konstantinov's illustration allows us a peak at this amazing and deadly virus.
