The Art of Science

KCA members – Professor Maria Kavalaris and  Dr Walter Muskovic – from the Tumour Biology Group at the Children’s Cancer Institute had a successful collaboration with Professor Tomasz Bednarz and Dominic Branchaud who are part of the Expanded Perception and Interaction Centre (EPICentre) at UNSW Art and Design. Walter explains “they helped with a project to visualise our RNA-seq time series data in their EPICylinder facility. The data was generated using synchronised brain cancer cells, to help us better understand the dynamics of gene regulation. The EPICylinder is a room. 7 meters in diameter with walls made up of high-resolution screens, containing 120 million pixels” and is pictured here.
