Origin of Life
Who we are and what we do
The research group “Origin of Life“ investigates the emergence and evolution of life on Earth. Furthermore, we seek answers on how our planet became habitable and apply this knowledge to extraterrestrial bodies. We view our group as progressive think tank that brings together researchers from different disciplines across the natural sciences (e.g., Earth sciences, molecular biology, microbiology, organic geochemistry, astrophysics). This interdisciplinarity environment catalyzes the development of new and controversial ideas about the origin and evolution of life. Further important aims of our work are the development of young scientists as well as the dissemination of knowledge to the wider public.
