Almost one for the "Lovely Graphs" thread - the metabolic pathways of a single cell:

Why does it look like the plan of an average commuter belt housing estate?

Does it have a beginning, middle and end.

It's incredibly detailed and complex. And it's just a single cell.

This is the map of energy going through a cell isn't that right .. ?

is there any link where you can zoom in on the image?

There's a link just under the map.

This seems to be detailing chemical reactions if I am not mistaken? So would these be paths of chemical reaction and not physical pathways, the overall pattern of the pathways (which make for some pretty designs in places) being more "conceptual" than real?

yeah that's right - it's hardly linear in a factory-type arrangement like on the map - it's more conceptual, kinda. The Cell is a 3-D entity though with discrete parts - a nucleus, walls, mitochondria, flagella or whatever. Proteins and other chemicals will therefore move between these things. Stuff gets made in different places and processed around the different parts of the cell I believe.

The map above doesn't say what kind of cell it is either - maybe some cells are more or less complex than that one ... maybe not ...

Odd that something that looks so simple can be so complex. I suppose it's kind of like the law. You have a parliament to enact the law, a judiciary to interpret and apply it, and a Constitution to protect the people from abuse of power. All seems very simply, but the reality is far from it.

Something antique about that ibis.

Isn't it trendy to be named a geek or nerd now ?

I think financial nerds are becoming a pain in the holism now though.

Tis a real beauty ibis - a good find.

That, ibis, is beautiful. It illustrates the beauty and complexity which is life itself.

I suggest we use that as the template for our new home at machinenation.org. All of the panels we have on the Portal can be rendered on the components like the Xilinx-branded one.

Ooh! A Jackson Pollock! Very nice and very apposite. There was a film on about the same man last night.

I hate to admit it tonys, but that's a very funny joke. Digout in no way deserves to be the butt of it, however. Still and all Smile

Wikipathways has wonderful detail

btw, the starter of this thread, as I recall, fails to distinguish mendelism amd Lamarckianism?

What are mendelism and Lamarckianism and how do they apply to the metabolic pathways in a single cell?

The "single" cell is now impossible to view except in a historical, epigenetic context
