VirusExplorer DEM – A Database for Diagnostic Electron Microscopy of Viruses

The “VirusExplorer DEM” is an offline stand-alone database which provides electron microscopy images of viruses as a reference and/or training tool for diagnostic electron microscopy of viruses. However, the database can be used for other purposes as well, e.g. as an image pool for teaching. The current version contains only images from material that was prepared by the negative staining technique. The addition of images taken from thin sections is planned for future versions.
