Scientists discover rules for some common virus shapes

Abstract:
A surprising discovery at the University of Michigan about how nanoparticles self-assemble into structures that resemble viruses gives scientists key insight into how common disease producing viruses might form in our bodies.

This new understanding brings researchers closer to making synthetic virus-like particles in the lab that could be used to help stop viruses from replicating, or could be used as stealth viruses to deliver drugs.
