Pod A Conference Room
Micro Working Group
Our campus is closed to the public for this event.
All living systems use polymers to encode and decode information. Some polymers are used primarily to store and transfer information, while others are needed for metabolic and functional roles. Although we know a lot about the genetic code of life on Earth, in this working group we want to investigate alternative genetic systems. We are particularly interested in the polymer composition and complexity needed to have a robust, stable, and evolvable genetic system for life to persist.
