Animating the Gut Microbiome
Animation can be a powerful way to inspire and educate people with science. Creating biomedical animations which depict advanced scientific concepts in a clear way requires 2 main considerations, 1) rigorous investigation of the underlying science, and 2) careful development of the story to express the ideas in a meaningful way.
In this talk Christopher Hammang will present his first biomedical animation “The Hungry Microbiome”. He will explore the challenges involved in animating the human gut microbiome and the unique insight gained from creating an animation about resistant starch. The talk will also explore the workflow and technology which can be used to create these biomedical animations, as well as a brief review of the science underlying resistant starch research.
