BRINGING RNA INTO VIEW
What molecule is the star of molecular biology?
Recent research shows RNA to be an active and central player in the molecular genetics story - a molecule that contains genetic information and acts as a biological catalyst. These modern roles of RNA provide clues to its possible participation in the origins of life.
- What is needed for life on Earth?
- Which molecules support life on Earth?
- What were the first molecules to form life?
