The origins of abiotic species

Researchers are studying a 'chemical evolution' to see if self-organization and autocatalysis will provide the answer. This research group previously developed self-replicating molecules -- molecules that can make copies of themselves -- and have now observed diversification in replicator mutants. This means that ecological diversity as encountered in biology may well have its roots at the molecular level.
