New Publication in Cell! The Phosphoregulation of Mitosis

Posted on Updated on

We are incredibly excited to announce that our SnapShot is out today in Cell!
This snapshot of mitosis collates hundreds of phosphorylation events and directly links them with their regulatory kinases and counterbalancing phosphatases, in both time and space, in a highly innovative ‘circtanglar’ cell layout. More importantly, the static PDF version is accompanied by an interactive website that enables users to access direct links to PubMed, UniProt, and Aquaria 3D protein structures for each and every phosphorylation event shown. The pop-up boxes also contain over 100 additional phosphorylation sites on dozens of proteins essential for mitosis. You can access the interactive web version here:  http://www.cell.com/cell/enhanced/odonoghue2
Even better news is that until August 04, 2017 the PDF version of the SnapShot is freely accessible for everyone at the following link https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1VDWh_278yyILK
A big thank-you to Jenny, Sam, Marcos and Sean for helping me put together what I hope will be an amazing resource for anyone interested in how cells divide and phosphorylation in general.

3 New Amazing Biomedical Animations by VIZBIplus !

Link Posted on

In a follow-up to the post I made a week or so ago on the amazing “Cancer is not one disease video“, there are now an additional 2 stunning videos from the very talented people from VIZBIplus covering the The Hungry Microbiome and Inflammation & Type 2 Diabetes.

The clips are a labour of love and have been a year in the making. To celebrate their birth, the red carpet will literally be rolled out for their creators, three scientist-animators: Dr Kate Patterson from Garvan, Chris Hammang from CSIRO, and Dr Maja Divjak from Melbourne’s Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research.[Link]

The VizbiPlus Challenge: Call for Entries

Link Posted on Updated on

Want to win a very cool Wacom Cintiq 13HD!

Got some amazing Science Artwork you want to show off?

Then why not enter the VizbiPlus Challenge !

‘VizbiPlus: Visualising the Future of Biomedicine’ is a new project funded by the Inspiring Australia government initiative, the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, the Walter & Eliza Hall Institute, and CSIRO. Its goal is to train three scientists to create scientifically accurate 3D animations that explain the latest biomedical research in a way that inspires and engages the general public, and then present this work in public events to maximise the reach of the work.
