I will present recent advances in the biomembrane research underlying the picture of fats, lipids, and membranes. It is possible to directly measure the spontaneous curvature of membranes and vesicles. By fine-tuning this curvature, we observe the formation of membrane buds, membrane nanotubes as well as controlled vesicle    division of membrane compartments with closed membrane necks. By developing experimental in-vitro systems and methodologies, we have facilitated a new understanding of membrane  organization, mixing  of  two  phases  in  the fluid-fluid  coexistence   region   and propagation   of the   activity   of membrane protein in the spatial domain up to long length scales.
