Rafal Wieczorek, Mark Dörr, Agatha Chotera and Pierre-Alain Monnard, all FLinT, have published a paper on the formation of phosphodiester bonds catalyzed by dipeptides in water/ice eutectic phases. The article is highlighted on the cover of ChemBioChem.

The Center for Fundamental Living Technology (FLinT) is located at University of Southern Denmark.

Our scientific mission is to analyze and understand the creative forces in natural- as well as in human-made systems. This is mainly done through the study of self-organizing processes.

Our main focus is to assemble the components of minimal living systems. In physico-chemical systems this means assembling protocells bottom up from inorganinc and organic materials. In hardware systems we investigate implementation of e.g. 3D printers able to print themselves, while in computational systems we study the emergence of replicators.

Our long-term technological vision is to develop the foundation for a living technology characterized by robustness, autonomy, energy efficiency, sustainability, local intelligence, self-repair, adaptation, self-replication and evolution, all properties current technology lack, but living systems possess.
