Formation of complex molecules in space and on planets – From interstellar clouds to life – Tartu, Estonia, 17 – 22 July 2017

The course “Formation of complex molecules in space and on planets – From interstellar clouds to life” will take place from 17 to 22 July 2017 at the University of Tartu. It aims to give students an overview of the biochemical evolution in the universe from formation of the first molecules in interstellar clouds to the assembly of the first cells on Earth. The course consists of lectures and student-led discussions.

Participants will also have the possibility to display their own research results in two poster sessions.The Stockholm University Astrobiology Centre, the University of Tartu, the European Astrobiology Campus, and the Nordic Network of Astrobiology will function as co-organisers of the course and the following subjects will be covered by the lectures:
•Formation of the elements in space
•Chemical processes in dark clouds, star-forming regions and protoplanetary disks
•Atmpspheric processes in rocky, gaseous planets and their satelites
•Emergence of Homochirality
•Formation of complx molecules in hydrothermal systems
•From carbon molecules to biogenic activity
•Assembly of first cells
