Science Meets Cinema

Tuesday is Science day in the New York Times.

Check out this cool article:

Dr. Lue is one of the pioneers of molecular animation, a rapidly growing field that seeks to bring the power of cinema to biology. Building on decades of research and mountains of data, scientists and animators are now recreating in vivid detail the complex inner machinery of living cells.

The field has spawned a new breed of scientist-animators who not only understand molecular processes but also have mastered the computer-based tools of the film industry.

Lots of cool images, and video, too.

UPDATED: Now with the link to the actual article!

  1. Call me a Peep Geek – this is fantastic stuff! Thanks for the post PhiloDave. Can’t wait to see some of these videos on the 9th floor display case screens. Produced by our very own HWC students, of course.
