Cell biology research is often used to culture cells, which has the advantage of providing a sufficient amount of cells for biochemical analysis, and only one cell, the material is relatively simple, and the analysis results are convenient. However, there are some inadequacies in some aspects of research, because cells are in a society in any organism, mixed with other cells to varying degrees, and cannot be adjacent to each other in their life activities. The effects of other cells, even the effects of adjacent cells of the same type, are much more complicated than the cultured cells. Therefore, some problems are difficult to carry out with cultured cells, or the results obtained can only partially reflect the actual situation. In order to study the relationship between cells and cells in a cell population, cell sociology has been proposed.
The content of cell sociology is quite extensive, including mutual recognition of different cells or the same cells, aggregation and adhesion of cells, communication and information exchange between cells, interaction between cells and extracellular matrix, and even organization in cell populations. The formation of a differentiation model. Some aspects have accumulated some information, and a more in-depth and objective information from the perspective of cell sociology will certainly provide more systematic and useful information. Since cell sociology is based on cell populations, and some problems are also needed for developmental biology, it is likely that it will become a bridge between cell biology and developmental biology.
Looking into cell biology research, removing the above work—about the structure and function of each cell component, and understanding various life phenomena—will continue to go deeper, what makes genes orderly selective The expression of the land may become a key issue in the future; in addition, cell sociology will receive more and more attention.
