Leslie Orgel Quotes

Leslie Orgel (1927-2007) was a famous evolutionary chemist who worked at Oxford and Cambridge. He and his fellows discovered many things that greatly improved our lives today.

Orgel also came up with two axioms in regards to the study of DNA and biological chemistry.

1. “Whenever a spontaneous process is too slow or too inefficient, a protein will evolve to speed it up or make it more efficient.”
2. “Evolution is cleverer than you are.”

That sounds like something I would say.
