COVER QuteMol-rendered image of human rhinovirus 3 (Protein Data Bank ID: 1rhi) illustrating virion topography. Red, blue, and yellow denote the three major surface capsid proteins; examples of RNA regional motifs are colored according to predicted base-pairing fidelity. Sequence diversity within the major surface proteins contributes to the wide range of immunogenic serotypes characteristic of the "common cold." See page 55. Image: H.
