HIV artistic rendering.
Image showing Watson and Crick, chimp, macaques, HIV virus particles.
HIV SIV Tree.
Mature virus particles released from host cell.
Virus particle is fusing with the cell membrane and about to empty its contents into the cell. Note the visible inner core.
Contains an image depicting the genome maps of HIV-1 HXB2, HIV-2 BEN, and SIV Sykes.
Magnification including computer enhancements are approximately 100,000 times. A mature round virus particle is sitting next to the cell ready for infection. Note the visible inner core.
Virus particle budding out from the cell. Although similar to the previous micrograph, the inner core is not as dense and therefore this is an "immature" viron budding out as opposed to a mature virus fusing in to infect a cell.
Bio-barcode amplification (BCA) is a new technique that can search for biological markers of Alzheimer's disease, which may lead to earlier diagnosis.
Professor Charles Sawyer explains that the CML clone makes mistakes in DNA replication and generates a diverse repertoire of mutations.
