Abstract:

I have the grating feeling that the subject of self-assembly of complex biological structures may not always amass the level of respect it deserves. I reckon that its importance is generally appreciated but, as topics go, it tends at times to be set aside. Yet, this is one of the most magnificent aspects of biology, one that beautifully combines logic with mechanics and attests forcibly to the power of evolution. And it goes back a ways. The pioneering study on the self-assembly of phages played an integral role in the development of molecular biology.

Flagellar motor structures obtained by electron cryotomography and subtomogram averaging. 20-nm thick central slices through tomograms of individual cells exhibiting flagellar motors, arranged in the same order as they appear on a phylogenetic tree. Scale bar, 50 nm. Axial slices through average reconstructions of each motor. Scale bar, 10 nm.
