People all around the world carve their initials into trees as a symbol of eternal love. But those carvings are about 1 million times larger than the paintings that were made in living cells by Y.-W. Wu, L. Dehmelt, and co-workers in their Communication on page 5916 ff. Although these cell paintings were not made for eternity, they lasted for several hours––a very long time in the dynamic environment of a living cell. The paintings were made not just for fun, but were used to manipulate cell function to reach a better understanding of complex disease processes such as cancer metastasis.
