About Rhinovirus

Rhinovirus is responsible for one third to one half of the common colds people suffer every year. There are a large number of serotypes therefore vaccines are not efficient to prevent against infection in this case. A large number of studies and research are therefore targeting other avenues such as antiviral drugs.

Rhinovirus is studied by molecular biologists, clinical researchers and crystallographers to better understand its life cycle and the biological and biochemical processes involved in the physiological effects provoqued by the virus. Researchers are now able to highlight research findings by plotting data directly onto the solved X-ray structure which tells where each atom in the virus is located.
