Cellular Dynamics

Cellular DynamicsA glimpse inside of a eukaryotic cell reveals an amazing and beautiful world at the micro‐ and nano‐scale, which is crowded with components in constant motion (Figure 1). Cells are constantly growing, dividing, bringing in nutrients, and synthesizing new macromolecules and assembling them into complex structures and organelles, as well as transporting materials to the outside of the cell for cell–cell communication. There are many levels at which cell biology can be appreciated, from genetic identification of new components, pathways and phenotypes, to imaging complicated and elegant architectures at high resolution, to elucidating structures and the biochemical and biophysical mechanisms that underlie their functions.
