Origin from of life - From a nanometer perspective in the Hassenkam Group

The overall goal of the Hassenkam Group is to understand how life originated on Earth. We assume that life began very simple and became more and more complex over time. We use nano-science tools to study the geochemical remains of early life forms, and to replicate the environments in which they formed.
