Abstract

Viruses are prominent examples of symmetry in biology. A better understanding of symmetry and symmetry breaking in virus structure via mathematical modelling opens up novel perspectives on how viruses form, evolve and infect their hosts. In particular, mathematical models of viral symmetry
pave the way to novel forms of antiviral therapy and the exploitation of viral protein containers in bio-nanotechnology.
