Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, chemistry

This video, which is a part of the Distinguished Lecture Series by Trivedi School of Biosciences, Ashoka University, Prof. Jack W. Szostak discusses why life began with RNA. Why was Ribose sugar chosen in the primordial soup, and not several other alternative sugars that may have been available? He shows this using elegant experiments that include chemistry and structural biology.

Distinguished Speaker: Prof. Jack W. Szostak.
2009 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine.
