We used several particle systems in Blender to visualize the dynamic environment of human intestine and to show the progression of dysbiosis and complexity of bacterial infection. We used hair particles to produce gut villi, which were animated by lattice modifiers. For the floating elements, we used a mix of hair particles and boids.

Alpha Tauri 3D graphics produces video and biomedical animation for companies in the biotech and pharma industry. We help small startups to get funding and big companies to communicate with their patients. We use Blender exclusively for modeling, animation and most of VSE.
