Absolutely incredible watercolors by David S. Goodsell of biomolecular structures within the body.

There are bunches more at his page (with legends and explanations), but here’s

an entire Mycoplasma mycoides cell. The cell shown here is about 250 nanometers in diameter, which is at the small end of the range of observed sizes.

As in my other work, I have tried to include all of the macromolecules at reasonable locations and concentrations, and with the actual shapes and sizes. Small molecules like sugars, ATP and water are not shown.
