Scientists tinkering with a chemical now vital to life think they've recreated one of the central molecules that first gave rise to the chemistry of life
Washington, Apr 20 ( ANI ): Researchers have successfully replicated the chemistry of life
in synthetic versions of DNA and RNA molecules, thus indicating that the pair of nucleic acids are not unique in their capability to encode information and to pass it on through heredity.

Although ubiquitous on Earth and central to the chemistry of life
, water remains mysterious on the molecular level.

Some scientists believe that early Earth was flooded with too much water for the chemistry of life
to gain a foothold.
The students will also participate in the Genes in a Bottle experiment, generously donated by Bio-Rad Laboratories, in which they will isolate their own DNA and learn about molecular biology, from cell structure to genetics to the chemistry of life
Yet Tainer and other researchers now argue that water is no innocent bystander in the chemistry of life
