Supplescroll. I've long been interested in UX for reading articles with figures and built supplescroll to explore ideas for reading such articles:
Anatomy and Taxonomy of Protein Structures | by Jane Richardson, is one of the most lavishly illustrated scientific papers in structural biology.
Milestones of Human Evolution from Paleontology & Bioinformatics | is my illustrated summary of human evolution, one of my favourite topics.
Melbourne in the 1950 | is a chapter from the book "Buddha in a Bookshop" that provides a lovely historical look back at Melbourne. It's from a memoir from the late Peter Kelly - a wonderful man I met at the Melbourne Buddhist Centre.
Structural Biology. I worked in structural biology for 10+ years, and published a few academic articles (google scholar). They make for some dry reading, but I'm quite fond of a few of them:
An Improved Strategy for Generating Forces in Steered Molecular Dynamics: The Mechanical Unfolding of Titin, e2lip3 and Ubiquitin (2010) | is a nice little method that I'm getting to reuse for ligand binding studies.
The flexibility in the proline ring couples to the protein backbone (2004) | is my favourite structural biology paper. It's simple, allows a clean geometric solution which I was able to obtain with the help of mathematician Vangelis Coutsias, and we cited an 1894 geometry paper that was written in French.
HOLLOW: generating accurate representations of channel and interior surfaces in molecular structures (2008) | is my most cited paper mainly because it's a tool. Not only that, but it's a visualization tool. The original tool was hosted on Sourceforge, but that eventually expired, but it now lives on at github/boscoh/hollow
