The 6th ELSI International Symposium "Building bridges from Earth to Life"

RSS

Understanding the transition from the Earth's earliest geochemistry to the later emergence of life requires a synthesis of knowledge across an unprecedented range of scales, including size, time, and complexity. Multiple topics need to be examined, such as elementary mechanisms in organic geochemistry and catalysis, energy sources and systems contributing to prebiotic reactions, the assembly and roles of intermediate-scale structures, and molecular and ecological systems evolutionary biology. Recent advances in several areas bring us closer to connecting several links needed to reason from micro to macro, and from geochemistry to nascent biochemistry. The goal in this symposium is to hold a collaborative conversation, among speakers and participants, to sketch the form of this emerging bridge, and to point out both the most compelling opportunities and the most urgent needs.
