The chemical origins of life and its early evolution Christine Phillips   |   added on Jan 14, 2011    |    United Kingdom How did life begin on the planet, and how did metabolic and genetic processes evolve at an early stage? Did this generate an RNA-based form of life, and how did this evolve into the present protein-based life? Researchers from a wide variety of disciplines will discuss possible mechanisms whereby biology emerged from chemistry
