conference paper description
Multilevel research strategies characterize contemporary molecular inquiry into biological systems. We outline conceptual, methodological and explanatory dimensions of these multilevel strategies in microbial ecology, systems biology, protein research, and developmental biology. This review of emerging lines of inquiry in these fields suggests that multilevel research in molecular life sciences has significant implications for philosophical understandings of explanation, modelling, and representation.
