The flows inside cells are intricate and often counterintuitive. Measurements, models, and simulations are helping to unravel the complexities. Cell biology has its beginnings in the first observations of cells through primitive microscopes and in the formulation of cell theory, which postulates that cells are the fundamental building blocks of life. Light microscopes showed that the insides of cells contained complex structures, such as nuclei, spindles, and chromosomes.
