  1. Conference Report “Stoffwechsel. Histories of Metabolism”, Workshop Organized by Mathias Grote at Technische Universität Berlin, November 28–29th, 2014. [REVIEW]Mathias Grote & Lara Keuck - 2015 - History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences 37 (2):210-218.
    Historical analyses of what metabolism has been conceived of, how concepts of metabolism were related to disciplines such as nineteenth-century nutritional physiology or twentieth-century biochemistry, and how their genealogies relate to the current developments may be helpful to understand the various, at times polemic, ways in which the boundaries between metabolism and heredity have been re-drawn. Against this background, a small number of scholars gathered in Berlin for a workshop that equally aimed at bringing new stories to the fore, and (...)

  • Confidence, Tolerance, and Allowance in Biological Engineering: The Nuts and Bolts of Living Things.Manuel Porcar, Antoine Danchin & Víctor de Lorenzo - 2015 - Bioessays 37 (1):95-102.
    The emphasis of systems and synthetic biology on quantitative understanding of biological objects and their eventual re-design has raised the question of whether description and construction standards that are commonplace in electric and mechanical engineering are applicable to live systems. The tuning of genetic devices to deliver a given activity is generally context-dependent, thereby undermining the re-usability of parts, and predictability of function, necessary for manufacturing new biological objects. Tolerance and allowance are key aspects of standardization that need to be (...)
