Drew Berry's Beautiful Animations of Our Biological Processes

More

Throughout the history of biological sciences, researchers have attempted to visualize the micro-world of our human bodies through various forms of art. Art simply makes all the fancy technical jargon-filled talks more understandable and interesting (and helps a college student taking Molecular Biology pass the course).

Using the latest in 3-D and 4-D computer animation, biomedical animator Drew Berry shows off in this recently posted TED Talk some stunning animations of various processes that go on around the clock in our cells.

Take a look at the TED Talk below showing beautiful and accurate animations of DNA replication and mitosis in action. It's like a Pixar movie about the life of cells.
