NASA is funding a network of researchers dedicated to studying how life got started anywhere in the universe, and last week, the agency chose interdisciplinary teams from 11 institutions to form a research network linked to the new Astrobiology Institute at NASA's Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. Scientists from the winning institutions say they intend to use the new institute to leap traditional disciplinary walls, linking biologists, chemists, and researchers probing the origins of life on Earth.
