Editorial Cover Illustrations
Journal and textbook covers, slides, and other editorial figures will appear here soon. On 3/3/11 I posted this temporary link to a Picassa slideshow that highlights a couple of my recent covers. I've got dozens of others and more descriptions to post once I get some free time (they will date back to 1995.)
YouTube Animations: Home of GrahamJ.com's Science Channel
I create lots of rough animation renderings that never had an audience until YouTube made it so easy to post. I hope these can be useful to others in the field or to learners who enjoy physics and/or cellular and molecular biology. The embedded YouTube site works poorly in Safari, so I recommend using Firefox to view this item.

Amino acid beads can identify you as a wicked cool nerd....
|The α-carbon atom of alanine is bound with a methyl group (-CH3), making it one of the simplest α-amino acids with respect to molecular structure and also resulting in alanine being classified as an aliphatic amino acid. The methyl group of alanine is non-reactive and is thus almost never directly involved in protein function.||
B is a placeholder. B is used cases where chemical or crystallographic analysis of a peptide or protein cannot conclusively determine the the difference between Aspartate or Asparagine.
You may thus select either D or N for a B from the menu to the right.
