Illustrations

These posts are the scientific illustrations used in my publications. I designed all the graphics for the my first-authored papers and also helped design some graphics in grant applications and papers first-authored by my group mates/colleagues. Only published graphics are shown here.

Eventually, I came up with the published layout.
