Science communication is highly valued at BRIC as a skill that can be done in many ways. Several researchers at BRIC have now tried their hand at combining art and science by creating comics as a way of communicating science in an eye catching way.

"We want to make our science accessible for everyone. We use the visual form of comics to explain our scientific findings and to reach out to a wide audience", says Konstantin Khodosevich, group leader.
