The cover of the latest issue of the Journal of Chemical
Physics (Volume 138, Number 15, April 21, 2013) is from
Ran Zhang and Per Linse at Physical Chemistry here at
KILU! The title of their article is ”Icosahedral Capsid Formation by Capsomers and Short Polyoins” and deals with
fundamental questions of how nearly spherical viruses
are formed through a co-assembly process.
