Assemble a virus: A chemical strategy to de novo design "tailor-made" viruslike nanocapsules was developed (see picture). 24-mer β-annulus peptides of the tomato bushy stunt virus (TBSV) spontaneously self-assemble into hollow nanocapsules with a size of 30-50 nm. The hollow structure of the assemblies was clearly revealed by small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS).
