DailyDirt: Observing Really Small Biological Events

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

It's not easy to study living things. Biological cells are made up of an insanely complex mixture of chemicals that somehow self-organize and react to produce stuff like sugars, proteins... and thoughts. Any help to visualize these biological processes is much appreciated, even if there's no Nobel prize for biology. Here are just a few more cool ways to measure what's going on in our bodies at the cellular level. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    Three months is not really that long?

    I hope they don't approve nanoparticles to be injected into people based on a few monkeys living for 3 months -- are these nanoparticles trapped in the body for that long or longer?
