Therapeutic viruses: A filament-shaped artificial virus is formed by using a preorganized supramolecular nanoribbon as a template. The artificial virus (see picture), which is composed of the nanoribbon, small interfering RNAs (blue, double-helix shape), and hydrophobic guests (red), is highly efficient in delivering genes and drugs to the inside of cells.
