Timberdoodle's review
Zometool Animal Virus
Small, simple, and dangerous, a virus produces weapons of micro-destruction. Adenoviruses, while rarely lethal to humans, are extremely hardy and are found everywhere in both human and animal populations.

Nothing to Sneeze At
Spread primarily via respiratory droplets, they infect the membranes (tissue linings) of the respiratory tract, eyes, intestines, and urinary tract. In humans, they primarily cause acute respiratory infections. Most interesting is their potential role as vectors in vaccination and in gene therapy (using viruses to deliver medicine).

Build a 3-D Model
In 2010, scientists announced that they had solved the structure of the human adenovirus at the atomic level, making for the largest high-resolution model ever. Now, with Zometool Animal Virus, you can make your own 3-D model and take a peek at the intriguing simplicity and brutal effectiveness of this virus

Build an accurate model of the animal virus and discover:
  • Why it's shaped like a geodesic sphere
  • Why it's covered with spikes
  • How it makes you sick
  • What it does to your DNA
  • ...and more cool stuff about viruses!

  • Includes:
  • 146 Zometool components
