This is the structure of the virus that causes Aids.

It was revealed by scientists from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics at Oxford University, who have been studying the Aids virus for at least a decade now.

Many people are excited about this discovery as not only does it show them what it looks like in 3D, it shows them how it grows etc.

Roger Pebody, treatment specialist at HIV/Aids charity Terrence Higgins Trust, said: "Revealing the 3D structure of HIV may not sound very exciting but it's actually really useful, giving us more information about the virus and how it grows.

"The more we understand about HIV, the more likely we are to be able to develop effective treatments and hopefully one day a cure."

This is really an important discovery for the research into HIV and Aids as it gives all the researchers a glance in 3D, to what they are actually fighting against in the labs.

Ill keep on adding to the thread if more info keeps on arriving.

Please explain to the sceptics and lay people what that blob of organic material you posted has to do with the "AIDS Virus"

I'm assuming that you are trying to make the argument that this shows a mutated strand (only logical cause would be the "AIDS Virus" *sarcasm) of genetical information replicating.

If you and people like you were less psychotic, less concerned with money and power than maybe there would be more people alive to tell you a different story about your AIDS.
