Biovisions by Harvard University

If you are as interested in how cells in the human body work and how food gets processed into energy, you should watch this clip below created by scientists at Harvard Medical School under a program called Biovisions. In today's NY Times video clip, the scientists explained why they wanted to created a video of molecular level cellular mechanisms - mainly for the public at large to know the intricate workings of the cellular components through a powerful visualization technique. The animations were jointly created by students of multimedia who want to work for companies such as Pixar and Harvard medical scientists. The animations largely accurately describe the bio-molecular processes to the last detail.

Enjoy the videos!
