A cartoon illustrating plant virus replication

The gorgeous Virginia Tobamo, also known as tobacco mosaic virus, explains how she manages to enter the cell, replicate and finally conquer the whole plant. The cartoon, which is intended to show the replication of a plant virus, has been realized by Unito Media, the Web TV of the University of Turin (Italy) and by the Plant Virology Institute-CNR (Italy). Unfortunately, the cartoon is so far only available in Italian . Click here to see the cartoon.
