New study sheds light on origins of life on Earth through molecular function

Washington (UPI) May 17, 2017 How did organic molecules come to birth life? Some scientists have hypothesized that ribonucleic acid molecules, or RNA, jump-started life. But others say RNA is too big and complex to have come first. Instead, "metabolism-first" proponents argue simple carbon-based molecules first evolved metabolic functions. New research published in the journal PLOS ONE lends support to the me

New study sheds light on origins of life on Earth through molecular function

In the primordial soup that was early Earth, life started small. Elements joined to form the simple carbon-based molecules that were the precursors of everything that was to come. But there ...
