Comments

The mechanisms of life are more complex than previously thought, writes molecular biologist Gottfried Schatz, codiscoverer of mitochondrial DNA.

1. Foreword

Dr. Gottfried Schatz, emeritus professor at the University of Basel, was one of the individuals who discovered mitochondrial DNA. On our website, you can also read another text he gave us titled The Meaning of Life. And at the end of this text, you can read more detailed information about Gottfried Schatz’s work and the honors he received for his achievements.

The text below first appeared in the Beobachter (Swiss newspaper: http://www.beobachter.ch), and the newspaper was then very gracious to allow us to reprint the publication on our website.

Ernst Erb (EE) uploaded the articles written by Gottfried Schatz and also added the texts in the boxes, the links, and special fonts. In addition, EE selected the images you see below. The author (with photo) of the main text is naturally listed as Gottfried Schatz.

2. The Interview: Each person shares responsibility for their own genes

In the article below, Gottfried Schatz emphasizes the fact that the mechanisms of life are more complex than previously thought. This requires that each and every person have a more respectful attitude toward all things and beings.
