Early self-reproduction, the emergence of division mechanisms in protocells.

Abstract

Synthetic Biology approaches are proposing model systems and providing experimental evidences that life can arise as spontaneous chemical self-assembly process where the ability to reproduce itself is an essential feature of the living system. The appearance of early cells has required an amphiphilic membrane compartment to confine molecular information… (More)
