The epidemiologist is concerned with populations, and therefore occupies a larger box than the molecular biologist, who deals with components of an animal’s individual cells. The latter may challenge the former to supply detailed molecular causal mechanisms. However, the molecular biologist should be reminded that he or she does not occupy the smallest box: the particle physicist, dealing with atoms and quarks, occupies a smaller box. The molecular biologist, therefore, equally could be challenged to explain mechanisms at a lower level than the one at which he operates (noting the deficiencies of reductionism).
