This image is an artistic representation of different elements related to bioinformatics. It shows a section of an illustration of the tree of life (upper left), part of a multiple sequence alignment of different hemoglobin DNA sequences (bottom), and the flow of biological information between DNA, RNA, and protein molecules (middle). See Wood and Gebhardt.
