    Collecting, Comparing, and Computing Sequences: The Making of Margaret O. Dayhoff's "Atlas of Protein Sequence and Structure", 1954–1965. [REVIEW]Bruno J. Strasser - 2010 - Journal of the History of Biology 43 (4):623 - 660.
    Collecting, comparing, and computing molecular sequences are among the most prevalent practices in contemporary biological research. They represent a specific way of producing knowledge. This paper explores the historical development of these practices, focusing on the work of Margaret O. Dayhoff, Richard V. Eck, and Robert S. Ledley, who produced the first computer-based collection of protein sequences, published in book format in 1965 as the Atlas of Protein Sequence and Structure. While these practices are generally associated with the rise of (...)

    Institutionalizing Molecular Biology in Post-War Europe: A Comparative Study.Bruno J. Strasser - 2002 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part C 33 (3):515-546.
    The intellectual origins of molecular biology are usually traced back to the 1930s. By contrast, molecular biology acquired a social reality only around 1960. To understand how it came to designate a community of researchers and a professional identity, I examine the creation of the first institutes of molecular biology, which took place around 1960, in four European countries: Germany, the United Kingdom, France, and Switzerland. This paper shows how the creation of these institutes was linked to the results of (...)
