When dual-PWS was used to study Eukaryotic cells , the researchers witnessed something that was unexpected. They purposefully used ultraviolet light on the cell to induce death, so they could measure how the movement of the cells' chromatin was changed. The researchers saw, for the first time, that right before the cell was about to die, the cells' genomes burst with fast, instantaneous motion, with different parts of the cell moving seemingly at random. It is still unclear why the phenomenon, named cellular paroxysm, occurred. I think having the correct lab instrumentation and techniques is a critical part of discovering the cure to debilitating diseases such as cancer, and Alzheimer. The importance of macro-molecular rearrangement is crucial to research because it is involved in every biological processes.
