The adventures of a biomolecule in a cell

The scientist: Jeanne Garbarino, a postdoctoral researcher in the Laboratory of Biochemical Genetics and Metabolism at The Rockefeller University. Be sure to read her blog and follow her on Twitter  @jeannegarb.

The idea: The operations of a cell depend on the interplay between a countless array of complex biomolecules. To comprehend life at its most basic level, scientists must track where these biomolecules go in cells to pinpoint what they interact with — what changes they might enable or undergo. The capability to understand the inner workings of cells might help grant the ability to control them as needed.
