Pick and Choose Your Cell Function With Designer Organelles

Caption: The authors see the newly developed synthetic host as a city. On the one hand, typical cellular processes -- seen as encapsulated, isolated, and made up of non-interchangeable elements -- are represented as repetitive structures: squared, isolated blocks which are always fenced, just like membranous organelles. On the other hand, the image highlights the making of a new organelle -- a new building that is not fenced -- which is accessible to the rest of the city while having its own identity, a building which is more dynamic and flexible.
