The origin and evolution of Life in the universe

Project description

Interdisciplinary collaboration aims to unlock another piece of the puzzle of the origin of life

How life emerged remains a mystery to this day. While research has helped unravel certain aspects of the origin of life, the answers are fragmentary. The EU-funded oLife project brings together a wide range of disciplines, from molecular biology and evolutionary ecology to astrophysics and biochemistry. This groundbreaking programme is part of a national interdisciplinary research effort that involves 300 scientists from top-research institutions in the Netherlands who are joining forces to enhance our understanding of the origin, evolution and distribution of life in the Universe.
