An artistic contribution to worm neuroanatomy.

sideview4Bumbargercover1In annotating all of the connectivity for my recent comparative connectomics papers, one of the byproducts was a massive 3D model of the anatomy of all the cells in the nervous system. For me, these models are fascinating to look at and  I enjoy when I get a chance to admire some of the beauty in the data I generate. I spent some time making some 3D rendering of the models using Blender (www.blender.org) in order to submit them as possible covers for the issue in which the paper was published… they weren’t chosen for the cover, but I still want to share them with the world!  Click the images to see them larger on my FLICKR page, and let me know what you think!

  1. Beautiful! I’m looking to get into 3D modelling for biology; I currently work at HHMI for creating a Drosophila connectome, but I love tinkering with this stuff in my free time!

    • Blender.org is your friend here… It has a steep learning curve at the beginning but it is what I use to render my 3D movies and models… Can’t wait for the Drosophila data to get published!

  2. Some genuinely prize content on this internet site, bookmarked. kffdcfdbdcbe
