Transcript Dr. Oro Creates Adenine in Search for Life Origin Dr. Juan Oro, University of Houston chemistry professor, is internationally known for his work on the synthesis of biochemical compounds under possible primitive earth conditions. He has synthesized, from ammonia, hydrogen cyanide and water, the chemicals adenine and guanine, two of the four bases considered by scientists to be characteristic of all earthly life. Dr. Oro entered the United States from Spain in 1952 on a Student visa, which allowed him to remain here until he finished his studies. He attended Rice University, University of Houston, and Baylor University and received his Ph.D. from Baylor. Dr. Oro was invited to continue his work and residence in the United States by congressional bills, sponsored by Albert Thomas and Lyndon B. Johnson. Serving with the University's faculty since 1955, he has conducted research under the support of the National Institute of Health, the National Science Foundation, and more recently the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Synthesis of organic compounds in the search for the answer to life's origin is currently being pursued in Dr. Oro's laboratory. A second major project is the analysis of organic molecules from ancient terrestrial rocks and extraterrestrial meteoritic matter, which may have at one time supported life or been part of the formation of the earth. Dr. Oro analyzes samples with the gas chromatograph analyzer unit. By the color of gas seen in the spectrum a compound is tested. • i i ii 115
