organisms showcase a stunning array of diversity, yet they represent
only an infinitesimal proportion of possible permutations. We want to
understand the course of evolution and the role that physical and
chemical constraints may play. Using experiment, theory, and
simulation, we analyze simple (bio)chemical systems at the edge of
life. Such systems can also help us understand the origins and early
evolution of life.
