Several years ago in an undergraduate Microbial Genetics course, I first laid my eyes on the inspirational circular representation of the Haemophilus influenza genome, the first free-living organism to ever have it's genome completely sequenced! The project was completed and published in 1995 by J. Craig Venter and his team at TIGR in collaboration with Hamilton Smith using a shotgun sequencing method. The researchers identified genetic coding regions which were incorporated into a circular genomic map. The beautiful image has always stuck with me, as the simplicity of the circle in conjunction with the complexity of genomics I find alluring.

Not an exact replica of any particular plasmid or genome, with this piece I let my paint brush and palette do the guiding :)
