The Molecular Sociology Of The Cell , Nature

Excerpts: Proteomic studies have yielded detailed lists of the proteins
present in a cell. Comparatively little is known, however, about how these
proteins interact and are spatially arranged within the 'functional
modules' of the cell: that is, the 'molecular sociology' of the cell. This
gap is now being bridged by using emerging experimental techniques, such
as mass spectrometry of complexes and single-particle cryo-electron
microscopy, to complement traditional biochemical and biophysical methods.
With the development of integrative computational methods to exploit the
data obtained, such hybrid approaches will uncover the molecular
architectures, and perhaps even atomic models, of many protein complexes.
