Don't be fooled by other virus products that are arbitrarily named, This model is actually representative of the real structure of this virus.
The virus is also shaded with procedural materials to allow infinite resolution no matter how close up you zoom into the model.
The model was built using quads, with efficiency in mind during the modeling process. It is designed to have the maximum detail with the least amount of polys needed to keep that shape. This is especially important to keep in mind if your are adding this model to a large scene with lots of objects. Using this model over others may help maintain system performance.
Using this model can help created realistic and high definition renderings to convey research or information to a 3rd party for informative or promotional means.
Ebola is the virus Ebolavirus (EBOV), a viral genus, and the disease Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF), a viral hemorrhagic fever (VHF). The virus is named after the Ebola River Valley in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire), which is near the site of the first recognized outbreak in 1976, a mission hospital run by Flemish nuns, in 1976. It remained largely obscure until 1989 when several widely publicized outbreaks occurred among monkeys in the United States.
The virus interferes with the endothelial cells lining the interior surface of blood vessels and with coagulation. As the blood vessel walls become damaged and the platelets are unable to coagulate, patients succumb to hypovolemic shock. Ebola is transmitted through bodily fluids, while conjunctiva exposure may also lead to transmission.
