Show your students the structure of the Ebola virus with our paper model.
Ebola is a highly contagious virus that causes a fatal hemorrhagic fever in humans and animals with up to 90% mortality. Ebola attacks immune cells, causes inflammation and damages blood vessels resulting in shock and death.
Ebola has a single-stranded, negative-sense RNA genome that is protected by a nucleocapsid. The virus uses glycoproteins on its surface to bind to receptors on its target cells. Ebola's polymerase enzyme replicates its genome and transcribes it to make viral proteins.

Perfect for use in class or for distance learning at home!
First, your students make their model of Ebola virus out of the colourful parts. Then they use their 3D model to look at the main features of its structure. These include the envelope, nucleocapsid, RNA genome, polymerase, matrix and glycoproteins.
