Today, I designed a "shiny" spliceosome using Photoshop. Look how beautiful it is
- the two red rectangles represent the exons
- GU and AG are the nucleotides defining the start and end position of the intron
- BPS : Branch Point Sequence
- (Py)n : Polypyrimidine tract
- ESE : Exonic Splicing Enhancer
- ESS : Exonic Splicing Silencer
- hnRNP : heterogeneous nuclear RiboNucleoProteins
- U+number : different sub-units of the spliceosome
- SR proteins : Serine (S) Arginine (R) rich proteins

Feel free to use it in your projects.
UPDATE: If you want to modify the image, you can use the .psd file in Photoshop
UPDATE: you can find the video online here, thanks to Yoann (Moussor) from bioinfo-fr.net for the video.
Yesterday I got the 1st rank poster prize at the ECCB12 (European Conference on Computational Biology 2012) conference in Basel Switzerland. I am very happy and I really hope to see more and more posters with AR in the future. I would like to thank all my friends for their support and also Henrik Kaessmann and Anamaria Necsulea my PhD supervisors.
Here is a picture of the result: (for people wondering where is the AR on the poster, I have the same target image on my poster but this one was next to my poster to let people play with it).
The 3D object represents two exons (red) and one internal intron (black and white) which recrute the different sub-units of the spliceosome (U1,U2,U4,U5,U6)
I will write a post with all the details on how to create an AR app for iOS using the Qualcomm Vuforia SDK, Unity3D and xCode ASAP...
And if you see any post or info related to my poster I would love to also read it, feel free to send me the link, thank you .
