Since 2003, the Vizzies Challenge has recognized visualizations of scientific data that are “exemplars of information made beautiful.”
At the 2017 Vizzies, David Goodsell's painting for the Molecule of the Month was recognized by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and Popular Science as one of the best science images of the year and selected as the “People’s Choice” in the category of illustration.
The image also appeared on the cover of Wing Beats and Cell Host & Microbe, and inspired other PDB-101 materials available for download, including Zika paper models and a coloring book.
