As you can appreciate I feel that a bit more artistic license needs to be taken with the design of the virus. Most flu viruses are spherical in nature with nodules etc. extending from the membrane. So with the criteria of spikey sphere in mind I spent an hour or so laying down some basic forms.
I will be researching the functionality of the virus, what all the components do and how they perform their tasks. Alongside this I will be creating more concepts as above.
A quick question for Dr Klappa:
I have been looking at the sort of content that is required for A-Level students, surprisingly the only virus that is covered in the resource material I could find on-line is HIV, is it appropriate to use the HIV resources as a guideline for the level of detail that a student would require?
