Wednesday Nite @ The Lab

"The Origin of Life as a Chemical Ecological Problem: New Ideas and New Experiments” by David Baum

Date
Wednesday, May 23, 2018
Time
7 p.m.
Description
Life is a chemical ecosystem that can propagate itself, spreading into formerly unoccupied regions of space. In his talk, David Baum will show that self-propagation implies the capacity to evolve adaptively and that such adaptive evolution can begin with simple chemical ecosystems occupying mineral surfaces, which only later invent cells and genetic systems.
