The Seven Stones

Simply beautiful


A complete 3D reconstruction of a fission yeast cell by electron tomography (Höög et al, 2007).

Is this systems biology? Perhaps, it reminds us that the “network” representation of cellular functions needs to be immersed in space (and time). This study provides a spatial reconstruction of a full eukaryotic cell at EM resolution—the model is descriptive and static, but very detailed. Simply beautiful.
