Methods for simplifying computer graphics images of atomic models of complex macromolecular assemblies have been applied to the tobacco mosaic virus structure to display different levels of its organization. By constructing sharply outlined pictures of the parts of the virus particle with the image resolution reduced or with obscuring detail eliminated, aspects of the subunit packing and chain folding are distinctly illustrated.
