This project is about designing an organism that resembles the Last Universal Common Ancestor and whose construction is feasible.

We have to start by:

  • Estimate the genomic size of LUCA.

Recent estimates sugest that LUCA was complex and probably had more than 600 genes (Kooning 2003).

  • Check if a RNA genome can sustain such genome size.
  • Does it had the necesary genetic machinery to support DNA?
