Popular science article about autocatalytic sets

A new article describing and explaining our work on autocatalytic sets and the origin of life, written for a general readership, just appeared in the popular science magazine The Scientist. The article is written by collaborator Wim Hordijk and covers the main concepts and achievements, from Stuart Kauffman’s original idea (in the early 70’s) to the recent confirmation that the metabolic network of E. coli forms an autocatalytic set.

A free online version of the article is available.
