PLoS Biol. 2020 Aug 6;18(8):e3000815. doi: 10.1371/journal.pbio.3000815. eCollection 2020 Aug.

Abstract

Two illustrations integrate current knowledge about severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) coronaviruses and their life cycle. They have been widely used in education and outreach through free distribution as part of a coronavirus-related resource at Protein Data Bank (PDB)-101, the education portal of the RCSB PDB. Scientific sources for creation of the illustrations and examples of dissemination and response are presented.
