David S. Goodsell is a Professor of Computational Biology at the Scripps Research Institute and Research Professor with the RCSB Protein Data Bank at Rutgers University. His research uses computer graphics and simulation to explore structure/function relationships in key biological systems. Current research projects are focused on exploring the structure of entire genomes in bacterial cells and mitochondria, and functional mechanisms of HIV budding and maturation. Science education and outreach is also a strong focus of his laboratory. He is author of the Molecule of the Month, a feature at the RCSB Protein Data Bank that presents the structure and function of a new molecule each month, and several illustrated books on biological molecules, their diverse roles within living cells, and the growing connections between biology and nanotechnology.

Molecular Landscapes

David S. Goodsell is a Professor of Computational Biology at the Scripps Research Institute and Research Professor with the RCSB Protein Data Bank at Rutgers. He divides his time between research in computational biology and science outreach. His art explores the inner structure of cells and viruses, using computer graphics and traditional painting with watercolor and ink. This article describes “Molecular Landscapes,” a series of work created for a show at the Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State University in April 2020, which was ironically postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Nanotransport

David S. Goodsell is an Associate Professor of Molecular Biology at the Scripps Research Institute. His research uses computer graphics and simulation to explore structure/function relationships in key biological systems. He is also an artist, using ink and watercolor painting to represent cells and their compartments: anything from a bacterium to the Golgi apparatus of a eukaryotic cell, nerve synapses or even viral particles. He was the winner of the Wellcome Image Awards 2016.
