Assembling Life: How Can Life Begin on Earth and Other Habitable Planets?

Talk by David Deamer 22 May 2019 at 12:00 in C113 HCØ, Universitetsparken 5.

David Deamer addresses questions that are the cutting edge of research on the origin of life. For instance, how did non-living organic compounds assemble into the first forms of primitive cellular life? What was the source of those compounds and the energy that produced the first nucleic acids? Did life begin in the ocean or in fresh water on terrestrial land masses? Could life have begun on Mars?

Hope to see you all there.
