A new study published today in shows that nearly all the ingredients for a potential forerunner to cellular metabolism could have formed easily from just two simple compounds reacting in water.
A new, open-minded approach to studying the origins of life made it “embarrassingly easy” to produce molecules that could have laid the foundations for metabolism in the first cells.
New research suggests the ingredients for reactions ancestral to metabolism could have formed very easily in the primordial soup. #Metabolism #Originoflife #Biology #BioChemistry #EarlyLife
