BRIEF BUT SPECTACULAR - 3D Illustrating Biochemistry

"Animating what’s under the microscope" PBS NewsHour 9/21/2017


SUMMARY:  Art and science have always overlapped; early scientists used illustrations to depict what they saw under the microscope.  Janet Iwasa of the University of Utah is trying to re-establish this link to make thorny scientific data and models approachable to the common eye.  Iwasa offers her brief but spectacular take on how 3D animation can make molecular science more accessible.
