Figure depicting the C- terminal transmembrane domain of HDL receptor, SR-BI in an LPPG micelle. 
Drs. Alexandra Chadwick and Daisy Sahoo at the Medical College of Wisconsin elucidated its structure using
 micelles. Find the study published hereMolecular structures were visualized using UCSF Chimera. 16:0 lyso PG
structure was obtained from Avantilipids website (Oct 2015)
In this figure Drs. Sunetra Biswas and Joanna L. Shisler of University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign show a
potential mechanism for turning off an antiviral response by suppressing the NF-kB pathway.

One of the most elaborate stuctures in plants - the Photosystem II, is a membrane protein that harvests light from the sun,
 splitting water molecules to generate electrons and the very precious oxygen.  It powers the downstream synthesis of 
ATP.  This was a poster made for the Milwaukee School of Engineering- Centre for BioMolecular Modeling as they
 wonder how life is complicated.  Molecular Structure rendered using UCSF Chimera.  (PDB entries used - 1s5I, 
LMProj.pdb from and oxygen.pdb from (Mar 2016)

One of the most complex molecular machineries - the RIBOSOME, caught in the process of 
protein manufacture.  This was a poster made for the Milwaukee School of Engineering- Centre 
for BioMolecular Modeling as they strongly believe that life indeed, is complicated.  Molecular Structure rendered 
using UCSF Chimera.  (PDB entries used - 4V5C, 1H4Q, 148L) ( Jan 2016)
