Anthropologists Put Scientists Under the Microscope

Natural Sciences, Social Sciences

Putting The Body Back In Biology: Natasha Myers’s book, Rendering Life Molecular, examines science as a cultural practice. She explores the ways in which scientists’ intuitions, attitudes and expectations are shaped by their shared work together in the setting of their scholarly communities. Her focus is on the protein, chains of amino acids and amino acids produced by DNA — and their functions depend not just on which amino acids are chained but also on the complicated and variable ways in which these are folded into an actual three-dimensional, physical structure.
