Animations of Cell Life

What goes on in biological systems at the molecular and cellular levels often can't be filmed, so the action has to be visualized with computer animation.


(Link to video) Artists can make an important contribution, making choices about color and light that bring out the beauty of this unfamiliar world. The example is produced by XVIVO Scientific Animations.

Thanks to Veronica, a medical illustration student at Johns Hopkins, for this link.

The malaria one made me understand how it worked so much better.
