Cells are highly dynamic and can change remarkably quickly. Movies are a great way to capture this dynamics. Often they are not only beautiful, but reveal unexpected complexities about cellular processes, complexities that cannot be appreciated from snap shots. Below you can find movies from our own research on lipid droplets, as well as a non-comprehensive list of web movies from other research groups in cell and developmental biology.
