My graphical and artistic skills are close to zero. I have to create a figure in which, apart from the genes I am studying and the reactions they catalyze, I also have to put a symbol to represent a 'folded protein' and an 'unfolded proteins'.

Do you know of any nice symbol or logo that could be used for this task? I suppose there is nothing like a 'international symbol to represent the concept of a folded protein', isn't it?

thanks

The BIND project generated a visual representation system called ProteoGlyphs a few years ago. This may have a glyph for folded and unfolded proteins. There may be more information on the BIND site about it bind.ca). It currently requires login to look at the site, I believe the glyph descriptions are there.

The system is referred to in this paper : http://people.csail.mit.edu/gdp/papers/pintilie_2005_proteoglyphs.pdf
