CryoGEnic

Illustration created for the CryoGEnic facility of the University of Geneva, a service platform for cryo-electron microscopy (2020)

This image symbolizes how cryo-electron microscopy has made big advances in imaging biological molecules in recent years, showing  a low resolution structure of the protein separase on the left, progressively blending into a protein model on the right.
This particular separase structure was solved by Prof. Andreas Boland, and the background features one of his grid acquisitions.
