Is there any resource of standardized and uniformly stylized (and potentially, but not necessarily, even free) icons of popular model organisms (including E. coli and other popular unicellular organisms)?

I wish to use it for making a small tabular-like panel with ~10 organisms, next to the main figure panel, which would show the detailed data for one organism.

Some model organisms are not yet included in unicode.

I saw some people use ggtree and emojifont to draw organisms in emoji. I hope this will help.

Does not answer your question as you want icons and not real images but still might be useful. NCBI Taxonomy linkout for given organism is usually a good resource to find images. Second is http://www.eol.org/ .

Sorry for spamming but openclipart is also a very good source (https://openclipart.org/) . Can be installed and accessed within libreoffice and takes care of most of my image needs. The animal icons is quite good and no restrictions (https://openclipart.org/share).

We use the EMBL-EBI Framework font icons for representing the species in our gene trees. To see the ones we have used, go to our page showing a profile of the PTEN drug target and expand the 'Gene tree' tab (second from the bottom).

Thank you. This is exactly what I would need, and they provide a contact for inquiries (which I shall use for trying to get a license or usage agreement).

See the PhyloPic project.

Edit: and the rphylopic project to access PhyloPic from R.

UCSC has some on their website. I am not sure if they are available for use with/without license.
