The Molecular Origins of Life, Munich conference addresses one of the most fundamental questions of science: How could life originate? With 24 talks by renowned scientists accompanied by panel discussions and poster sessions, this international conference brings together scientists from a wide range of disciplines, namely: astronomy, bio-/chemistry, bio-/physics, geosciences and theoretical chemistry and physics. Together, we pave the way towards answering some of the most pertinent questions of humankind: What were the conditions on early Earth? Which chemicals could serve as precursors for the synthesis of living systems? How did the very first genetic material develop? How could Darwinian evolution emerge? What were the first metabolic pathways? The conference's aim is to represent and to discuss the state of the art in the Origin of Life field.
The Molecular Origins of Life Munich 2024 is organized by DFG funded Collaborative Research Center 392 Molecular Evolution in Prebiotic Environments. Attendance to the event is free of charge.
Registration is mandatory to be able to attend the event both online and on site.
