“It’s a discovery group with some pretty strange aims, but we’ll tell human beings if they’re alone in the universe.” Lee Cronin, Regius Professor of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow, tells The Scientists’ Channel about the Cronin Group’s far-reaching project exploring the origin of life and its objectives to create artificial lifeforms, discover aliens and work out how to digitize chemistry. Cronin highlights the inception of a new programmable robot for molecular discovery with the aim of ushering in a new golden age of reproducible, open-source chemistry to save thousands of hours of time spent on repetitive routine chemical syntheses.
