Expandohedra: Modeling Structural Transitions of a Viral Capsid
Adam Arstall, Briony Thomas, Reidun Twarock and Emilio Zappa Proceedings of Bridges 2015: Mathematics, Music, Art, Architecture, Culture (2015) Pages 471–474
Inspired by natural phenomena and mathematical theory this paper
presents the development of a model, based on the dodecahedron,
that visualizes the structural transition and expansion of a capsid
(viral protein shell).
