Zeit und Ort

Monday 10.15-12.00, N020 Kleiner Physikhörsaal

We will highlight recent results on recreating the emergence of the first replicating systems on early Earth. The course is aimed to give in introduction in recent experimental and theoretical approaches in both the Christof Mast and Dieter Braun lab. We will present and critically comment on most recent topics and give a hands on introduction to this intriguing and highly cross-disciplinary field. It is a 2 hour lecture, 3 Credit Points. The lecture is for Master students and open to other discilines such as Geoscience and chemistry. The lecture is offered within the Biophysics Program of the Physics Master.
