Graphic Representation of the Collaboration between Experimental and Computational Biology

Caption: This is a graphic representation of the collaboration between experimental and computational biology. The outer ring represents results of next-generation genetic sequencing of the glioblastoma genome, showing expression of the FGFR-TACC fusion gene (red peaks). In the center, FGFR-TACC fusion protein (red) can be seen disrupting tubulin bundles (green), structures that support cell division, or mitosis, at the point connecting the two daughter cells (whose nuclei are colored blue).
