This is a 3d Human Foamy Virus in HIGH DEFINITION!
The virus is also shaded with procedural materials to allow infinite resolution no matter how close up you zoom into the model. It uses subsurface scattering to achieve an organic look.
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.
Human foamy virus (HFV) is a VI spumavirus virus also known as spumaretrovirus. HFV is a member of the Retroviridae family and for this reason has two positive sense RNA genomes, meaning that this virus is a true diploid. The virus was first identified in 1971 from lymphoblastoid cells within a Kenyan patient with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (above the soft palate of pharynx of the nasal passage). The isolation and sequencing of a chimpanzee foamy virus isolate made clear that human foamy virus is a variant of that widespread simian foamy virus, hence no authentic infectious agents are present in human populations.
