Astrobiology, Synthetic Biology, and the Future of Life

Category:

Date: Thursday, September 28, 2017

Location: , Washington, DC US, 20540-4860

What is life? How might life have emerged on Earth or on other worlds? And how might we engineer the future of life—what might we make life to be? Astrobiologists and synthetic biologists grapple with these questions every day. To further explore the intersections between these sciences and the humanities, the Library of Congress is bringing together scientists, scholars, artists, and journalists for a special symposium on the intersections of astrobiology and synthetic biology.
