  • Massive simulation shows HIV capsid interacting with its environment

    Physics professor Klaus Schulten and postdoctoral researcher Juan R. Perilla conducted a 64-million-atom simulation of the HIV capsid. Video shows simulation of HIV capsid. Yellow and blue particles are ions flowing into and out of the capsid.
