Shubhanjali Minhas Art
This cover art was created for a CRISPR/Cas9 system that the Nobile lab was working on. The piece likens a block tower to the genome of Candida auris, a fungus highly resistant to antifungal treatment. A Cas9 molecule is represented in the piece along with guide RNA. When this Cas9 molecule is used to take out certain genes, represented by individual blocks, in the genome, the block tower eventually falls, representing the heightened susceptibility of Candida auris to antifungal treatment. The light blue glow in the background represents the nucleus of Candida auris cells, while the orange globular shapes in the back represent the Candida auris cells.
