I’m reading Brown’s new Robert Langdon novel, Origin. There’s a decent chance you are too.
Ian O’Neill discusses origin-of-life research, and bizarrely restricts the explanations to “fluke” or “physics.”
Max Delbrück (1906-1981) was a biophysicist and Nobel laureate who made seminal discoveries in the DNA-based replication of viruses.
Without intelligent design, how the “the last universal common ancestor of all living organisms” arose remains frustratingly elusive to theorists.
This from Nature Reviews Chemistry caught our eye – an unexpectedly candid admission of how far origin-of-life research is from shedding real light on its subject.
