How biology works: an intracellular animation.

Including (I am told) an animation of actual happiness...

Yep. Smile

Yep. Smile


Now do you know that from recognising the molecular structures or because you're familiar with the video?

The endorphine looked bigger than I expected it to...
Nick

I've seen the endorphin video before but didn't know what it was. Many of the others are my daily bread and butter tho.

You been doing that molecular gastronomy cookery again then?
Nick

Heh no.

This week I've been helping look at glucose levels following major trauma at the QE in Birmingham, muscle fibre contractions without oxygen and some mitochondrial disease receptor studies.

Various similar molecules/organelles are in that video.

Do visualisations such as these help in that regard, or are they just for fun?
Nick

No. Just for fun. Hairyloon

No. Just for fun.
I imagine we are a way off actually modelling a cell on that level, but I doubt that we are as far off as people think.

I reckon they've done the harder part for the video...
Nick

No. Many of those we can actually see already and see how they work. It's how I recognised them. Figuring *why* they do what they do at certain times, or do not, is the current task.

I reckon there's a mixture of bacterial and animal/plant cell things going on in there.

Is there a guide to it at all that you know of?

All that I know of it is what's on that page. Though I may get moved to look into it more...
