The first images of viruses were obtained after the invention of the electron microscope by German engineers Ernst Ruska and Max Knoll. In 1935, Wendell Meredith Stanley, an American biochemist and virologist, carefully studied the tobacco mosaic virus and found that it was mostly protein. After a short time, this virus was divided into the protein and RNA components. The tobacco mosaic virus was crystallized first among viruses, which made it possible to learn a lot about its structure. The first radiograph of the crystallized virus was obtained by Bernal and Fankuhen in the late 1930s. Based on her images, Rosalind Franklin in 1955 determined the complete structure of the virus. In the same year, Heinz Frenkel-Konrath and Robley Williams showed that purified tobacco mosaic virus RNA and shell protein are capable of self-assembly into a functional virus. This allowed them to assume that a similar mechanism underlies the assembly of viruses inside host cells. The second half of the 20th century was the heyday of virology. At that time, over 2,000 species of animal, plant and bacteria viruses were discovered. In 1957, a horse arterivirus and the causative agent of viral diarrhea of cows (pestivirus) were discovered. In 1963, Baruch Blumberg discovered the hepatitis B virus, and in 1965 Howard Temin described the first retrovirus. In 1970, Temin and David Baltimore independently described reverse transcriptase, the key enzyme with which retroviruses synthesize DNA copies of their RNA. In 1983, a group of scientists led by Luc Montagnier from the Pasteur Institute in France first isolated a retrovirus, now known as HIV. In 2002, the first synthetic virus (polio virus) was created at New York University.
