Three-dimensional clusters of gold nanoparticles with a core nanoparticle at the center is assembled with the virus-based nanoparticle of simian virus 40 (SV40) as a template. The nanoparticle species in the core and the density of the gold nanoparticles on the shell can be easily tuned. The 3D hybrid nanoarchitectures provide interesting models for nanoparticle interaction studies and open new opportunities for integration of various functionalities in complex nanoarchitectures.
