Colloquium on “The Origins of Life”

On Friday, November 19th, 2010, Robinson Professor Harold Morowitz gave a presentation to students in the Honors College. He spoke about the origins of life describing how scientists look at the “phenomenon from the top down by looking for molecular features common to all organisms and from the bottom up by looking for those features of geochemistry, chemical networks, and non-equilibrium physics favorable to the emergence of life.”
