While virus is maturing, Heng-Chang Chen (Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), Edif. PRBB, Dr. Aiguader, 88, 08003, Barcelona, Spain). Oil on canvas.
The idea of this painting is to present a transient state while a virus is being a mature form in the final stage of its life cycle. As envelope proteins are not fully covered a whole viral particle, we are easily to see the internal structure of a virus.

Kidney Stone Under Microscope
Scanning electron micrograph of a kidney stone (nephrolithiasis). Kidney stones form when salts, minerals and chemicals in the urine (for example calcium, oxalate and uric acid) crystallise and solidify. Small kidney stones are often passed naturally but larger stones can sometimes get lodged in the kidney or other parts of the urinary tract. Size of stone is 2 mm.

The Hungry Microbiome — Christian Stolte, Christopher Hammang (CSIRO Computational Informatics, Sydney, Australia).
Created for the animation &#8220;The Hungry Microbiome&#8221;, this study shows resistant starch granules and the bacteria which break them down floating above the surface of the colon. At the bottom, a cut-away view of crypts shows the absorption of butyrate (shown as light blue particles), which is a byproduct of the bacteria and the main energy source of the cells in our colon. A steady supply of butyrate helps to detect mutations and prevent cancer. The main point of this study was to develop an interesting lighting scheme for this scene.
