The Inner Life of the Cell is a short 3D computer graphics animation demonstrating various biological mechanisms that occur within a white blood cell in the human body.

When teaching biology, professors will often generate 3D animations to demonstrate certain concepts to their students in a much more visual way than would otherwise be possible. In the case of The Inner Life of the Cell the creators aimed for a more cinematic, as opposed to academic, feel.

David Bolinsky, former lead medical illustrator at Yale, lead animator John Liebler, and Mike Astrachan are some of the creators at XVIVO who made the movie. They created the animation for Harvard's Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology.

Most of the processes animated were the result of Alain Viel's, Ph.D. work describing the processes to the team. Alain Viel is an associate director of undergraduate research at Harvard University.

The movie took 14 months to create for 8.5 minutes of animation. It was first seen by a wide audience at the 2006 SIGGRAPH conference in Boston.

Of course DNA is a double helix, but in the biomolecular world there are many single helical structures – viruses, bacteria etc. – composed of single strands of DNA’s close cousin, RNA. But anyway, when we think we ‘see’ a single spiral out there in space, we might not necessarily be taking in the whole picture. That is, there may be ‘invisible’ helices that we also need to identify. In a typical galaxy, for example, scientists have discovered that the visible spiral arms, composed of stars, are enveloped by an accompanying magnetic field, which actually spirals around each of the arms. Also binary stars trace a double helix through space and time. Again, in the solar system there are several planets, each one spiralling along its respective trajectory, but if you consider the combined paths of any one of them in relation to another, or in relation to the sun, the result, quite clearly, would be a double-helix configuration. The point is, it is the helix itself, whether single, double or even multiple, which appears to be the basic design for all evolutionary phenomena, above and below.
