NANOBES: animated impression 

This is an artist's visualisation of nanobes moving, reproducing by 'budding', and then shrinking. Its purpose is merely to impart a sense of movement to a static image and thereby convey characteristic growth and movement of the nanobes. 

This image is copyright protected. It may be used for a small fee commercially which will be used to help the funding of further research into nanobes. A larger version of it exists in AVI format for commercial use. Please contact Dr. Philippa Uwins for details.
