The Role of Form in Molecular Biology: Conceptual Parallelisms with Developmental and Evolutionary Biology

Due to the hegemony of genetics, the vindication of the role of form in biology has been mainly posed against the belief in the molecular determination of morphology. As a consequence, the question of the irreducibility of biological form is usually found in the context of the confrontation between anti-reductionist epigenetic and reductionist molecular approaches.
