I’ve been reading the biophysics literature on lipids in preparation for the defense, particularly in connection to phase transitions, transient pores, and lipid ion channels. If you’re at all interested in membrane transport, you’ll find Heimburg 2010 and Salgado 2011 fascinating.
I’ve long known that lipid membranes are messy, but I had not came across a clean distribution profile of the messiness until today. The original, however, was in 7 shades of gray that even my eyes can’t tell what was going on. After sketching out for myself what it would look like (and some iterations of cleaning up) we ended with a pretty sweet poster of lipid EDP:
