Temperature gradients and prebiological evolution


Thermodiffusive transport of trace elements that play important roles in living organisms, such as molybdenum, nickel, copper, and vanadium, was studied in a nonisothermal biphasic system comprised of a liquid solution and jelly layers. Our intent was to mimic the effects of temperature gradients on prebiological evolution. Conditions were found, similar to… (More)
