Origins of life: How life emerged from an abiotic world

How did life begin? Dr. Wim Hordijk explains why autocatalytic sets, one of the main underlying concepts in the ATTRACT project Emerging life (EmLife), are relevant to the origin of life.

EmLife aims to gain a deeper understanding of the origin of life and the basic underlying chemical organisation of living systems.

This project is part of ATTRACT which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
