Strategies to study proteins involved in a process : Biochemistry : Purify the proteins involved and study their behavior  in vitro.  Recapitulate the process in a test tube. Identify a minimum set  of proteins that can make something happen. Genetics : Isolate a mutant that is defective in the process.  Also  engineer organisms. Cell   Biology : Watch the process in a microscope.  Follow the dynamics  of particular proteins in a living cell.  Does inhibiting the function of a  specific protein in a living cell block the process you are interested in? None of these fields are independent:  Cell biologists do biochemistry, Cell biologists use genetics, Geneticists  use cell biology….
