This piece captures the stepwise assembly of a herpesvirus virion from the perspective of an assembly manual. The viral capsid is assembled in the nucleus of infected cells and is composed of distinct parts. This component will be combined with the viral genome. The second complex is prepared within the cytoplasm consisting of a lipid envelope containing viral proteins. The final steps involve combining the assembled capsid with the assembled viral lipid envelope to produce an infectious particle. Each part is digitally drawn and edited using MediBang Paint Pro.
