This dataset contains the diffraction patterns that were used for the first three-dimensional reconstruction of a virus using FEL data.

The sample was the giant mimivirus particle, which is one of the largest known viruses with a diameter of 450 nm.

The dataset consists of the 198 diffraction patterns that were used in the analysis.

This dataset is part of the Scientific Data XFEL Biodata collection.
