John Yin: “Arrow In, Arrow Out: Rumination on the Origins of Life and Nurturing Research Collaborations” [VIDEO]

John Yin spoke at the Discovery Seminar Series in January, 2016, offering his perspective on the origins of life, dynamic stability, and developing collaborations.

John Yin, Systems Biology:

What is life? How did life emerge? How could one create conditions in the lab for something life-like to arise from chemistry and physics? This talk will take baby steps toward addressing these questions. At the same time, we will attempt during our lunch-time excursion to link:

(i) a key difference between home-made and store-bought cookies,
(ii) target-guided single-pot combinatorial synthesis and selection for novel therapeutic discovery, and
(iii) how to avoid scientific jargon.
