CP violation in the lepton sector underlying the matter-antimatter asymmetry?

Following a recent measurement of the T2K Collaboration, in a Nature News and Views article Silvia Pascoli and Jessica Turner have discussed the question whether CP violation in the lepton sector can be a key ingredient to the matter-antimatter asymmetry in our Universe:https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-01000-9?utm_source=feedburner… For the T2K report see https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-020-2177-0
