Why put a pub in the middle of a laboratory? Because when you want your researchers to be creative enough to solve science's hardest problems, it helps to mix them all together with coffee, ping-pong, and beer.
In this animated portrait for Janelia Farm Research Campus [janelia.org], 3 scientists tell stories about what Bob's Pub means to their creative process. Each impression is animated beautifully by Dustin Grella, of "Animation Hotline" fame.
