Here are some thoughts prompted by a rather curious question posed to me in an email, namely, “What were the findings that most helped ID since the turn of the millennium?”
As imaging techniques approach nanometer resolution, the detailed workings of molecular mechanisms reveal precision engineering designs.
If you tried to build a pipe that had to rotate on its long axis while maintaining its angular shape, could you do better than this?
Get acquainted with another irreducibly complex molecular motor. This one is a master at unfolding proteins. Its method is ingenious.
The nucleus is a beehive of activity, where information is not just stored but processed, protected, transcribed, and duplicated by highly complex machines.
