Molecular Animation: Cinematic Science

From the animators that brought us the glorious video, The Inner Life of the Cell in 2006, comes another tour de force in molecular animation. This time, the collaborative team of BioVisions, a scientific visualization program at Harvard’s Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, and the Connecticut-based scientific animation company Xvivo have created a video entitled Powering the Cell: Mitochondria.

As with their previous video, Powering the Cell: Mitochondria is a glorious depiction of intricate cellular processes that combines detailed science with beautiful animation. Both videos can be seen below (Inner Life after the break), and the field of scientific animation can be learned about by reading the recent NYTimes article of molecular animation.
