Mind the Graph
Oct 25 · 3 min read

Hello again! As you may know, every week we add new illustrations to our library. This week we had a huge improvement on our section of life science illustrations.

We know that isn’t easy to find accurate and attractive images to illustrate our research. So our goal is to help scientists and improve communication in science.

These illustrations and other thousands ones are available at mind the graph. You can create a free account and check out all them.

Immune receptors

We added four new immune receptors to our collection. Thus it is easier to create an immune response pathway. You can combine them with other receptors, proteins, cell membranes and biological elements to create your graphical abstract.

Lipogranuloma in swiss mouse

Lipogranuloma is a granulomatous inflammatory soft tissue reaction, consisting of lipid deposition or a lipidic substance commonly associated with injections, trauma or secondary to systemic diseases. As the swiss mouse are a common animal model, we added three illustrations to show the disease in mouses.
