Is There a Universal Biology? – Jan 27

We search for the origins of life on Earth and the potential for life elsewhere, but what are we actually looking for? What is life? Is there only one way to construct a living organism, or are we Earthlings but one possibility out of a multitude?

Our speaker, Dr. Lynn Rothschild, is an astrobiologist and synthetic biologist at NASA Ames Research Center. She is also an adjunct professor at Brown University and at UC Santa Cruz.
