Davies, Paul – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2007
The origin of life is one of the great outstanding mysteries of science.

Most undergraduate students will think of teaching, while PhD students will think of research. University staff will have similarly varied reactions depending on their roles. Emphasis on one or…
