ELSI scientists discover new chemistry that may help explain the origins of cellular life

Chemists find simplest organic molecules can self-assemble to give cell-like structures under early Earth conditions

25-Jul-2019

Before life began on Earth, the environment likely contained a massive number of chemicals that reacted with each other more or less randomly, and it is unclear how things as complex as cells could have emerged from such chemical chaos. Now, a team led by Tony Z. Jia of the Earth-Life Science ...
