The Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution (FfAME), supported by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, is managing a program to support innovative experimental projects to address and resolve paradoxes surrounding the origins of life. This program supports the research of eight teams throughout the US who are dedicated to furthering our insight into how life originated on our planet. The projects here are ones that identify a puzzle, problem, or paradox that makes it appear improbable (or impossible) for life to have emerged at all, and then propose a new experimental approach to manage, constrain, or resolve that puzzle/problem/paradox.
