Molecular Landscapes: E. coli
A painting by David S. Goodsell illustrates a cross-section through an Escherichia coli cell. The image is available for download from the Molecular Landscapes SciArt Gallery.
A new detailed key of the molecules that are depicted in the illustration and information on scientific sources for the structures is now available (PDF).
Goodsell's molecular landscapes are available from PDB-101 in a special SciArt Digital Archive. These watercolor paintings integrate information from structural biology, microscopy and biophysics to simulate detailed views of the molecular structure of living cells.
