Part of the TCSS Annual Symposium

One of the key questions concerning the origin of life is ‘How did the complex chemistry of genetics appear on the early Earth?’. Indeed answering this question presents one of the most fascinating challenges of modern organic chemistry as it relies ‘unconventional’ chemical techniques. The field has undergone something of a renaissance in the last decade and is the subject of several recent high profile publications in Science and Nature. Dr Roberts will review a history and future of the field, including the most recent publications on the origins of genetics and work from his PhD in Prof. Matt Powner’s group at UCL .
