The Diamond Light Source synchrotron facility ( http://www.diamond.ac.uk/ ) located at Harwell in Oxfordshire and the Pirbright Institute ( http://www.pirbright.ac.uk/ ) commissioned iemedia solutions to produce a video detailing the life cycle of the Foot-and-Mouth Disease Virus (FMDV).
The video shows the infection of a cell by the FMDV, the translation of the viral RNA strand to produce proteins for both replication of the RNA itself and for the formation of the protein shell (capsid) that packages the replicated viral RNA strands. The video ends with the release of vast numbers of new virus particles from the infected cell.
