Description:

The question of how life first emerged lies at the heart of one of today's most contentious scientific debates. Biochemist, Janet Iwasa utilizes scientific animation to bring a new visualization to the origins of life. After being awarded a NSF Discovery Corps fellowship, Iwasa teamed with the Massachusetts General Hospital and the Museum of Science to create this multimedia display of life’s origins. This online exhibit provides an animated timeline of life’s evolution. The website also illustrates the formation of protocells and the complexities of the RNA world.
