RNA reactors | the Manitoban

Scientists at the Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich believe they have found the answer behind the emergence of self-replicating polymers. Computer simulations showed that a prebiotic RNA reactor could serve as a stepping stone toward the emergence of a true RNA replicator. Acting as a filter to keep potentially useful sequences of nucleotides, the RNA reactor could lead to complex sequences, such as ribozymes. Once ribozymes emerge from an RNA reactor, they could establish an efficient self-replicating system in the form of an RNA replicator.”
