ISMB brings together scientists from a wide range of disciplines, including biology, medicine, computer science, mathematics and statistics. In these fields we are constantly dealing with information in visual form: from microscope images and photographs of gels to scatter plots, network graphs and phylogenetic trees, structural formulae and protein models to flow diagrams; visual aids for problem-solving are omnipresent.

Often these visual aids are limited and provide nothing more than a small clue to the solution of the problem. But then there are special ones that make the whole more than the sum of its parts. Ones that combine outstanding beauty and aesthetics with deep insight that perfectly proves the validity of the scientific approach or goes beyond the problem's solution. Ones that surprise and inspire us through the transition from science to art, ones that open our eyes and minds to reflect on the work we are doing.
