The origin of life on Earth continues to amaze scientists, yet gazing back billions of years
evidence is growing supporting a new hypothesis on the origin of life: with a precise RNA and DNA combination
Both RNA and DNA determine the genetic make-up of all living things, with RNA serving as
Before they were split apart, DNA and RNA may have coexisted on Earth for a very long time.
Diamidophosphate (DAP), a basic molecule that may have existed before life on Earth began, is supported by some evidence.
It's likely that the first self-replicating molecules were a combination of DNA and RNA.
The idea that RNA alone created life on Earth is seriously flawed since RNA is not the only component of life.
