More Animations of the Tiny Machines of Biology


I keep finding more of these amazing video animations of the types of machines working at the cellular level of life. Though perhaps not 100% accurate, having talked briefly with 2 PhD level scientists  – from MIT and the University  of Pennsylvania –  it seems these videos quite accurately represent what modern systems-biological research (not evolutionary biology) is discovering.

Take a look and marvel …

This is an accurate science animation of the T4 bacteriophage virus that showing how the virus assembles itself after infecting an E. coli cell. These models were generated from data provided by the Michael Rossmann Lab at Purdue University.

This is an accurate science animation of the T4 bacteriophage virus that shows how it packs DNA into the head/capsid of the virus. These models were generated from data provided by the Michael Rossmann Lab at Purdue University.

Here is a short video of the Bacteriophage ‘landing’ on a bacterium:

This is a highly accurate visualization of the Bacteriophage T4 based on Cryo-EM datasets of the virus. The scope of the animation is to show the infection process of the T4 into an E. coli cell. All scientific data sets and motion based off of research from Michael Rossmann Laboratory (Purdue University). Courtesy of Seyet LLC.
