Drew Berry: Animations of unseeable biology

Via Scoop.itDigital Fabrication – teaching using new technology

We have no ways to directly observe molecules and what they do — Drew Berry wants to change that. At TEDxSydney he shows his scientifically accurate (and entertaining!) animations that help researchers see unseeable processes within our own cells.   “Even as a scientist, I used to go to lectures by molecular biologists and find them completely incomprehensible, with all the fancy technical language and jargon that they would use in describing their work, until I encountered the artworks of David Goodsell, who is a molecular biologist at the Scripps Institute. And his pictures, everything’s accurate and it’s all to scale. And his work illuminated for me what the molecular world inside us is like.”
