Building cell signaling pathways step-by-step

Building cell signaling pathways step-by-step

How to empower your research in Life Sciences with graphical abstracts? It isn’t easy to create accurate and beautiful images of cell signaling pathways. However, As I already wrote about how most Cell Press journals ask for a Graphical Abstract  and how this can be a barrier if you are a scientist, but not a designer. Today, I’ll show you beautiful examples of cell graphical abstracts created with Mind the Graph and a tutorial step-by-step, so you’ll can create your graphical abstract easily as well.

When you try make your image of a cell signaling pathways, probably, the first problem is to find illustrations of cells, membranes, receptors,  proteins, DNA and all molecules you need to show. Mind the Graph solves this problem. With thousands illustrations available, you can find many options to illustrate your work in cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry or pharmacology. If you don’t find the illustrations you need, is simple, just request new illustrations. With all illustrations you need available is easier to finish your work. However, it is not always easy to put all information together in a beautiful and organized way.

Because of that, we make several tutorials in our youtube channel to help our users. Our new video is a tutorial step by step of a cell signalling pathway, inspired on a creation of a Mind the Graph user. But first, let take a look at two creations from our users:
