The Shape of a Cell
Each term I make a research comic for the Oxford University Biochemical Society magazine called Phenotype. The topic for this cartoon; the function of cell shape in bacteria. You might not know, but bacteria can have one of a huge variety of different shapes, but why cells have a particular shape is not a commonly asked question. To quote Kevin Young: "To be brutally honest, few people care that bacteria have different shapes. Which is a shame, because the bacteria seem to care very much.".
Check out the comic here, the whole issue will be available to download for free from here soon.
