Art and Mass spectrometry
« on: 11/05/2016 22:51:48 »
Hi everyone!

I just participated to a biology contest : we have to send one picture with a brief description (Technics + purpose of the experiment) and the prettier and most creative pictures are published (and people can vote for them). Cause I'm working on Mass spectrometry field, I thought it would be a good idea to do something related to that (instead of Immunofluorescence...) My picture was selected but no one is voting for it haha...
So please can you take 3 minutes and tell me what you think about it, if the abstract is clear or not...

Of course, feel free to click on it and like it on Facebook !! (If you like it). 1 like = 1 vote!

Thank you very much!



Cause Abstract is in French, I'm gonna translate it bellow :

Protein Galaxy

Each of our cells is composed of special blocks called proteins. Proteins interact with each other and allow cells to do their duty. Those interactions form complex networks which, when disturbed generate pathologies. We investigate protein networks potentially involved in cancer to identify new key proteins. Each large white spot with rings is a protein studied and every small point, a newly identified partner. Each line represents the interaction between two proteins. We have focused our research on a new group of identified proteins (targeted by a white cross on the map), involved in biological processes deregulated in cancer. Thus, our approaches allow better comprehension of this disease.

Partners were characterized by mass spectrometry in human or murine cells. The network was modeled and organized with Cytoscape software. Illustrator was used to create the rings and add 5 white lines on the map.

I had trouble spotting the "white cross on the map"/"une croix blanche sur la carte".
And then I realized that the cross is so large (but low contrast) that I had missed it!

I'm afraid that I can't comment on the artistic merit.

Ok thanks a lot!
Other people told me that too.
I'm gonna try to work on it.

Thanks again for your feedback!
