Transitions and Translation in Scientific Practice

The use of molecular data and methods has transformed many traditional fields of biology, and this ARC Future Fellowship project investigates what has changed, and how, in collaboration with scientists as well as philosophers. The aim is to develop new philosophical angles on various molecular life sciences, particularly systems and synthetic biology, molecular phylogenetics and molecular microbial ecology. Because much of this research is tied to microbial model systems, this project connects with a more general one, on philosophy of microbiology.
