Christian Landry is the Principal Investigator of a lab at Laval University in Quebec, doing really interesting work on cellular networks.
Without all of the described investigator interventions, a system of replicating RNAs could never emerge or even sustain itself.
I suspect this challenge will not be widely heeded. Studying these issues will lead researchers toward a conclusion they simply are not willing to accept.
Any progress toward life would be lost if a fully functional cell did not emerge within a reasonably short period of time.
DeepMind, the AI company that beat human Go gamers with AlphaGo, has made progress in solving the protein folding problem. But who deserves the credit?
