Under a high magnification of 150,000X, these negatively-stained transmission electron microscopic (TEM) images revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology exhibited by a number of different microorganisms. Panel A represents a composite micrograph, created for the purpose of comparing the size difference between a poxvirus at the top, a bacillus in the middle, and a herpesvirus at the bottom. Panels B, C, and D, are TEMs depicting the sequential degeneration of variola virus particles.
