Recent progress in cellular biology has shown that the nucleus of a living cell is a structured integration of many functional domains with a complex spatial organization. This organization, as well as molecular and biochemical processes are time regulated. Despite a growing interest, the global internal dynamics of the nucleus is still unknown. In this letter, we show that this dynamics can be investigated successfully by means of dynamics light scattering experiments.
