Dynamic Kinetic Stability (DKS) as a conceptual bridge linking chemistry to biology

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

6 Scopus citations


This contribution gives a brief overview of the Dynamic Kinetic Stability (DKS) concept. The concept appears to offer new insights into the central questions of biology - what is life, how it emerged, how would one make it, as well as explaining in basic physicochemical terms the truly remarkable characteristics that life so clearly manifests.
