ANIMATION

Powering the Cell: Mitochondria

Share this animation:

XVIVO teamed up with Harvard to develop a 3D animation for their Molecular and Cellular Biology students about the microscopic world of mitochondria. This video highlights the creation of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) – mobile molecules that store chemical energy derived from the breakdown of carbon-based food. ATP molecules act as a kind of currency, imparting chemical energy to power all the functional components of cellular activity. This piece is the second in a series of animations for Harvard’s BioVisions. View the first in the series, titled The Inner Life of the Cell, and the third, titled Protein Packing.

The creation of truly effective science animations requires a community of scientists and multimedia professionals where mutual trust and respect is a given. The leaders at XVIVO bring the creativity and collaborative spirit necessary to hold such a community together and enable innovation in science visualization.
