Molecular Landscapes: E. coli
A new painting by David S. Goodsell illustrates a cross-section through an Escherichia coli cell. The image is available for download from the Molecular Landscapes SciArt Gallery.
This painting is an update of an earlier E. coli painting from 1999, incorporating abundant new data that has been gathered since then, including proteomics information and many amazing new structures.
Goodsell's molecular landscapes are available from PDB-101 in a special SciArt Digital Archive. These watercolor paintings integrate information from structural biology, microscopy and biophysics to simulate detailed views of the molecular structure of living cells.
