Searching for answers in biology is still very much an empirical process. Life emerges from a complex dynamical network of molecular interactions; but we lack excellent theories for how, when, or why a given collection of molecules find each other in the cellular soup, ultimately effecting the underlying processes of biology and, taken together, facilitating life as we know it. For my part, I attempt to catalog the parts of cells by developing and using a specific set of tools known as affinity proteomics. The approach is very much akin to taking apart an alien car in hopes of figuring out which part does what, and how it works. One day I would like to be able to consider a parts list and, a priori, understand what the cell is, does, and how.
