From: Stochastic dynamics of virus capsid formation: direct versus hierarchical self-assembly

Figure 1

Visualization of T1 Capsid Assembly. The snapshots from the computer simulations show the course of T1 virus capsid formation for direct (top) and hierarchical assembly (bottom) from n f =60 single monomers. In hierarchical assembly, a color change of the proteins from blue to red indicates the switch of binding characteristics upon completed formation of a pentameric capsomer.
