2002. ITALIAN SPACE AGENCY (ASI) RESEARCH CONTRACT No. I/R/315/02 20/SEptember/2002 "ROLE OF COSMIC DUST analogues AS CATALYSTS OF THE Syntheses AND DEGRADATIONS OF BIOGENICALLY RELEVANT PREBIOTIC MOLECULES ".
TOPIC: TOTAL SYNTHESIS OF nucleoBASES AND of Nucleic Acids COMPONENTS.
Duration of the project: 12 MONTHS.
2002-2007. European project EU-COST Action D27 titled "Prebiotic Chemistry and Early Evolution: Etiology, Replication, Activity and Persistence of RNA", adopted on 07.06.2001, start date 27/02/2002, termination date 26/02/2007. Action D27 Aimed at development of the chemistry connected with the origin of life and early evolution of life on Earth, with special emphasis on self-replicating systems, prebiotic synthesis of nucleic acids and polypeptides, as well as simple protocells as early models of biological cells. To accomplish this objective, D27 has coordinated the scientific activities of the very many European research laboratories working in the field of prebiotic chemistry and early evolution, has Contributed to focus These activities into a few important research directions for greater efficiency, and has itself established businesses as the first European research network on prebiotic chemistry, origin and early evolution of life capable of interacting at an international level and in a competitive way.
