In this episode, I spoke to Kate Adamala, a chemist at the University of Minnesota. In her Protobiology Lab, she is trying to build a synthetic cell from scratch. We talk about whether it is possible to make life, and what that could tell us about life itself.
This is the final episode of What Is Life? You can find links to all eight episodes (and show notes) here. And please spread the word however you can, such as reviewing it on Apple and elsewhere!
