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.

You can view the pre-press version now online at Cell Cycle https://www.landesbioscience.com/journals/cc/article/28401/

UPDATE: Were now in PubMed too! http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24626186

There are lots of pretty pictures, and we will be uploading them over the next few weeks once the Press version of the  paper is out.

Big thanks to all the authors and to the amazing editorial team at Cell Cycle for their help getting this reviewed and published in a very rapid and professional manner.

Until then here is a pretty movie of what happens when you treat cells with low doses of the Cdk1 inhibitor RO3306.

I am pleased to announce that the latest publication for the lab is now available online at PLoS ONE [Link][PDF].

Below are some additional videos of the Chromotek HeLa cell line [link] undergoing cell division, with the Imaris Dot quantification overlaid, along with a instructional video on how to perform the dot quantification analysis using Imaris Software.
