Some of the Molecular Landscapes by David Goodsell explore the molecular basis of vaccines.
These paintings are designed to be accurate representations of the biological processes, but also serve as a celebration of a miracle of modern medicine.
The watercolor paintings of David S. Goodsell integrate information from structural biology, microscopy and biophysics to simulate detailed views of the molecular structure of living cells. Proteins, nucleic acids, and lipid membranes are shown; small molecules, ions, and water are omitted for clarity.
