Illustrations and Graphics Related to the Avian Influenza Coronavirus

Symmation is building an extensive portfolio of illustrations, and in the future animations, of viruses - especially coronaviruses. Coronaviruses are a family of viruses to which the avian flu virus belongs.

Barbarians at the Gate

Viruses can rapidly infiltrate a host and hide from the immune system. One of the many ways that they do this is by entering cells and hide. At some point, the virus will replicate and these will exit the cell in great quantities. This...

Virion - Capsid Structure

A view of an idealized virus particle, adopting icosahedral geometry. The protruding appendages illustrate the virus envelope proteins that bind to host cell receptors. Looking for more virus images and illustrations? Click here for more...

Mechanoviral

Within the theme of nanotechnology, this piece represents the "industrialization" of viruses. While being more artistically liberated than other technically accurate works within the Symmation gallery, this piece conveys what does not exist....

SARS Avian Influenza Virus - First Pictures!

Avian Influenza/Flu Influenza viruses that infect birds are called avian influenza viruses. Here, a virus is depicted, specifically its capsid with the protein "spikes" - more to come! Looking for more virus images and illustrations? Click...

Emerging Foes - virus vs. Man

Marbug, ebola, avian, influenza - these are just some of the viruses that threaten Man. This piece represents a concept, rather than some detailed scientific topic. Looking for more virus images and illustrations? Click here for more...

SARS Coronavirus Virion (CoV) - A Halo of Spikes

The coronavirus family is named after the corona, or halo, effect that is seen surrounding the virus when viewed by electron microscopy. The capsid protein of the virus is the spike, or S, glycoprotein. This protein interacts with the host...

Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS)...

Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is viral respiratory illness first reported in Saudi Arabia in 2012. It is caused by a coronavirus called MERS-CoV. Most people who have been confirmed to have MERS-CoV infection developed severe acute...
