Abstract Dengue, Japanese encephalitis, West Nile and yellow fever belong to the Flavivirus genus, which is a member of the Flaviviridae family. They are human pathogens that cause large epidemics and tens of thousands of deaths annually in many parts of the world. The structural organization of these viruses and their associated structural proteins has provided insight into the molecular transitions that occur during the viral life cycle, such as assembly, budding, maturation and fusion. This review focuses mainly on structural studies of dengue virus. This article was published in Nat Rev Microbiol and referenced in Journal of Bioterrorism & Biodefense
