Abstract

In what follows, I will focus on two aspects of the role of robustness in contemporary laboratory science by analyzing a case of ongoing research on bacterial endocytosis in mammalian cells, in which robustness, in the sense of multiple convergent derivations of the same result, is explicitly targeted.
