Jon Heras – Progression of Angiogenesis
A illustration of the progression of angiogenesis, which is the physiological process involving the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels.
Jon Heras – Astrium’s Solar Orbiter
Still from an animation of Astrium's Solar Orbiter mission, showing the satellite facing the sun
Jon Heras – Engineered bacteria, conceptual image
Engineered bacteria, conceptual image. Bacteria (green) made out of Lego, representing the ability scientists have to alter and rearrange a bacterium's genetic material.
Jon Heras – Superimposed Strings of Data
The image shows multiple superimposed strings of data encoded in such a way that the quantum computation can be performed on a remote server, while still securely encrypted.
Jon Heras – a Kinease Protein
Illustration of a kinease protein, highlighting lysines and active sites.
Jon Heras – Genetic engineering, conceptual artwork
Genetic engineering, conceptual artwork. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) molecule made of Lego representing scientists' ability to alter and rearrange an organism's genetic material.

Jon Heras – Molecular Model of a Holliday Junction
Molecular model of a Holliday junction between homologous strands of DNA.
Jon Heras – drug designed to disrupt a particular transcription site
Illustration for Gilead, with an drug designed to disrupt a particular transcription site. The structure comes from X-ray crystallography data.
Jon Heras – SSTL-900 Platform
Illustration of Surrey Satellite Technology's SSTL-900 platform
Jon Heras – Bacterial Growth
Illustration showing bacterial growth (i.e. physical size)
Jon Heras – NovaSAR Earth Observation platform
Illustration of Surrey Satellite Technology's NovaSAR Earth Observation platform, which uses (Synthetic Aperture Radar)
Jon Heras – molecular structure of diamond
Computer artwork representing the molecular structure of diamond, a form of the element carbon. Carbon atoms are shown as gemstones, linked by rigid bonds.
Jon Heras – Bacteriophage Virus
Bacteriophage virus, computer artwork. A bacteriophage, or phage, is a virus that infects bacteria.
Jon Heras – Programmable Biological Computer
Illustration for Microsoft Research, showing their concept of a programmable biological computer, with DNA, proteins and amino acids forming the computational network.
Jon Heras – Alien Sea ‘Anemone’
An abstract concept of an alien sea 'anemone'.
Jon Heras – Functioning of a Quantum Computer
Functioning of a quantum computer, where superimposed entangled photons are flattened to give the result of the computation.
Jon Heras – Survival of the Fittest
Illustration showing an analogy of "survival of the fittest" with respect to genetic engineering. Multiple genes can be tweaked with each bacterium taking different combination - the most successful at each stage are selected and the process repeated.
Jon Heras – Animation of Saturn
Still for an animation of Saturn, showing it backlit.
