Uncovering Life's Third Domain: The Discovery of the Archaea

This exhibit showcases some of the original tools used by Professor Carl R. Woese, 2003 recipient of the Crafoord Prize, and the team of scientists at the University of Illinois-Champaign who conducted groundbreaking work in the use of molecular signatures to map the evolutionary history of life. The work of this team led, eventually, to the discovery of the Archaea, the third domain of life.
