Description:Caption:
Under a magnification of 370,000X, this transmission electron microscopic (TEM) image depicts a number of smallpox virus virions. These organisms display an internal, dumbbell-shaped structure that represents the viral core, which contains the viral DNA. This DNA acts as the blueprint by which the virus replicates itself once it is released into the host cell.
