Cover of Molecular Biosystems

Our illustration was chosen for the front cover of Molecular Biosystems! The article (here) describes how photo-control of the conformation of peptides can be used to activate the first stages of apoptosis in cancer cells. The cover illustration shows molecular model cartoons depicting lit and unlit peptides whose shadows show the effect on the conformation of the peptide backbone.
