Astrophysical Sources of Energy for Life



The working group "Origin of Life" is an activity of Göttingen Academy of Sciences and Humanities in cooperation with the Courant Research Centre Geobiology. The group commenced work in 2011 bringing together scientists from a variety of fields (such as Microbiology, Molecular Genetics, Chemistry and Earth Sciences) for a multidisciplinary discourse on the conundrum of genesis and early evolution of life on planet Earth.

Building bridges between seemingly unrelated disciplines should provide opportunity to develop plausible new scenarios relevant to the origin of life problem and amenable to subsequent experimental test.
