Evolving Chemical Systems/OmerMarkovitch

From Origins

Notes by user Omer Markovitch (Univ. Groningen) for Evolving Chemical Systems

Post-meeting Reflection

1+ paragraphs on any combination of the following:

  • Presentation highlights
  • Open questions that came up
  • How your perspective changed
  • Impact on your own work
  • e.g. the discussion on [A] that we are having reminds me of [B] conference/[C] initiative/[D] funding call-for-proposal/[E] research group

Reference material notes

Some examples:

  • Here is [A] database on [B] that I pull data from to do [C] analysis that might be of interest to this group (insert link).
  • Here is a free tool for calculating [ABC] (insert link)
  • This painting/sculpture/forms of artwork is emblematic to our discussion on [X]!
  • Schwartz et al. 2017 offers a review on [ABC] migration as relate to climatic factors (add the reference as well).

1) Markovitch et al. 2018: Addressing the 'bridge' between chemistry and biology by trying to apply biological tool on a chemical system showing replication.

2) Markovitch & Krasnogor, 2018: Demonstrates how a network can be analyzed in order to extract all potential 'species', in a dynamical context.

3) Gross et al. 2014: Shows how compositional replicators could be cast in terms of Eigen's Quasispecies, hence in principle are evolvable in the same way a quasispecies is.

4) Sadownik et al. 2016; An experimental system based on multiple (two) types of building block showed not only the emergence of a variety of replicators but also that some of these replicators emerged with the help of other replicators.
