Basic Structural Components

HIV consists of two basic components: a core of nucleic acid, called the genome, and a protein component that surrounds the genome, called a capsid.

The genome carries the genetic information of the virus, while the capsid gives the virus its shape and protects the genome.

The capsid is made up of subunits called capsomeres.
