3D Printed Physical Model of the Influenza Virus

Shown below is a 3D printed physical model of the Influenza Virus. The membrane is yellow, the neuraminidase proteins are pink, the hemagglutinin proteins are purple, and the proton pump proteins are light blue. The model has been designed with an opening to allow the schematic addition or removing of genome segments.
