The San Diego Section has organized three monthly meeting lectures this year, the most recent coming from Professor Donna Blackmond from TSRI on March 17th. Her talk focused on the chemical and physical models for the origin of biological homochirality, the way in which racemic (or near racemic) mixtures of chiral molecules could lead to the stereospecific chirality seen in biologically relevant building blocks such as sugars and amino acids. The event was made possible by … Continue reading
