The cover image depicts a rendering of a Beta-helix structure formed by a polyglutamine peptide, putatively implicated in numerous protein-aggregation diseases. The merged image of the eye, the polyglutamine structure, and the simulation program code represents the ability to capture aggregation-prone protein conformations using computer simulations. (see Khare et al)
