It’s summer, when we tan, strain muscles doing yard work, overexert ourselves with outdoor sports, and generally increase our metabolisms. But what’s going on in those little cellular factories that have to respond to our macrobiological exertions? This video gives you some inkling. However, I don’t believe my body generates a soundtrack this spellbinding — even though it would be cool if my cells had some nice music to work by!

3 Thoughts on "The Inner Life of a Cell — An Amazing Animated Movie That Will Make You Appreciate Biology Much More"

This is indeed amazing. However, as I am no biologist and as there is no commentary, I have no idea what’s going on… What process are we looking at, what’s happening?

While I don’t understand the explanations without a biology background it’s till interesting to hear what’s going on from the biologists perspective. Amazing animations!
