Seminar: Physics of Early Life – Übersicht

  • Übersicht

Which biophysical processes could lead to the first living systems? How can Darwinian evolution be triggered by nonequilibrium processes? Can we build the strategies of life bottom up in the lab? The minimal requirements for the emergence of an evolutionary dynamics are three processes: replication, mutation, and selection. To maintain the genetic simulation, also a nonequilibrium system is needed. We will discuss recent progress in understanding this phase transition from nonliving to living matter. Topics will include experimental and theoretical treatments.

Zeit und Ort

Friday 10.15-12.00 N110 Seminarraum Rädler/Efetof

The Seminar is geared towards Masterstudents, however talented, late Bachelorstudents willing to digg deep into more special concepts are also welcome. Papers will focus on recent advances on Origins of Life. As a first try, we will open the Seminar to online participants with lmu credentials (email) and perform it in hybrid form. I however expect that all seminar participants will actually participate!  > Here is the Zoom link for the Seminar <
