’Complex molecular landscape of key events in HIV lifecycle within blood serum: budding from dying T-Cell, maturation of HIV virion, attack of the immune system, finding and contact with the new host T-Cell, fusion with cell membrane and release of genetic material.
I spent a lot of time creating and animating functional model of HIV, based on AutoPACK. Basically I constructed HIV recipe, replaced all geometries with particle systems and re-instanced with new protein models. That allowed me to control HIV model dynamics and easily store HIV lifecycle animations via particle caching. Blood serum model is based on particle system instanced with AutoPACK generated protein geometries of valid concentrations and density.
For modelling of TCell interior I also exploited AutoPACK recipe for generic cytoplasm, added actin filaments and microtubules of different states and bilayer model with embeded proteins. Most of the AutoPACK HIV protein geometries were replaced using mMaya plugin. I also used Chimera during modelling of cellular scaffolding and especially to build GAG (GAG-Pol) molecules.
Created with Autodesk Maya as primary weapon of choice.
The goal was to depict my inner vision of dynamic and crowded molecular landscape and AutoPACK really convinced me to be an awesome tool for this purpose. Really appreciate your efforts, great job. Great challenge. I’ve been waiting for such opportunity for a very long time.
”This is an inspirational example of what can be done with the software and models placed in the hands of a master of art and science. I’m very impressed that you pulled all of the software together into such a powerful tool set. The image is dazzling, informative, and thorough. I really hope you will finish the video versions that you put so much effort into as well… looks like you’re very close!” –G Johnson (host)
"One of the most hardworking, welcoming people I’ve ever met. I think one of the best actors I’ve ever worked with. I would say that the reason the show is as successful—a major part of that is because of him. He was always on there and welcomed everyone to the set even if they’re there for one scene or for a few years,” Young said. “And he would just always give you so much. If you had a scene with Colin you would be better, I think. He’s genuinely one of the nicest people. He loves acting so much and so committed. He gave his life over for the eight months we filmed. He’s someone I am in awe of. I’d like to be a bit more like him."
Made me laugh :)
if i had the power to control time i would probably just use it to sleep more
He’s always (always, always, always) just too lovely for words…
It should be noted that beneficial, or at least non-pathogenic, characteristics of prions are reported for certain proteins of yeast and that analogous roles for mammalian prions have not been discovered. A commonly discussed yeast prion is [PSI +], the abnormal conformation of Sup35p, a protein that regulates translation termination. [PSI +] is said to be a genetic element and be inherited . It can bestow a survival advantage by way of allowing translational read through that Sup35p normally suppresses, giving access to hidden genetic traits. Therefore cells have one-step access to multiple phenotypes via the conversion of a protein to its prion state, and such conversions are reported to occur in response to environmental change

I always forget that Rory is older than the Doctor. Compared to Rory, the Doctor is like a whiny teenager.
