Death by Antibiotics for Harvard University


An illustration we made for Harvard University showing the death of bacteria by antibiotics. The cells’ membranes are punctured, allowing the insides to leak out forming bubbles, which eventually burst. This image was selected for the cover of Biophysical Journal.

Fitness landscape illustration for Harvard University


An illustration we made for Harvard University showing that small mutations can lead to the discovery of a local optimum, but multiple mutations may be required to make the leap to a global optimum. Here, mutations are shown as trails, with some going nowhere, and one successfully finding a better route. (top) the final image,

Bacterial Family Trees for Harvard University


An illustration we made for Harvard University showing that having a non-equal distribution of key proteins at cell division can be beneficial by driving adaptation – prioritising speed of growth or hoarding resources, depending on the environment.
