Teach your class about the monkeypox virus with our 3D model.

Monkeypox virus causes fever and a rash then pus filled skin lesions and can sometimes be fatal. It arose in Africa but outbreaks occur around the world.

Monkeypox virus has a double-stranded DNA genome that is protected by a nucleocapsid in a core. The virus uses proteins on its surface to bind to receptors on its target cells. Monkeypox is a large virus that contains genes for all of the enzymes needed for its replication.
