When our Personalized OncoGenomics Program turned 5 years-old, I created a series of art posters showing 545 cases studied over the course of the program. Download posters for printing and desktops and slides.

It's Snowing in my CPU — a Snowflake catalogue

The snowflake was born on a cold, winter's day far up in the sky, many miles above earth.
— Paul Gallico, Snowflake

Go ahead, meet some snowflakes.

Somewhere in the world, it's snowing. But you don't need to go far—it's always snowing on this page. Explore light flurries, snowflake families and individual flakes. There are many unusual snowflakes and snowflake family 12 and family 46 are very interesting.

But don't settle for only pixel snowflakes—make an STL file and 3D print your own flakes!

Ad blockers may interfere with some flake images—the names of flakes can trigger ad filters.

And if after reading about my flakes you want more, get your frozen fix with Kenneth Libbrecht's excellent work and Paul Gallico's Snowflake.

flake families

Flakes are grouped into 50 families using k-means clustering. Families are ordered by the number of flakes in each family—family 1 has the largest number of flakes and family 50 the smallest.

The flakes below are random samples from each family.
