Influence of Introduction of Mitosis-Like Processes into Mathematical-Simulation Model of Protocells in RNA World
In this article influence of operation of mitosis–like mechanisms, on hybrid simulation–mathematical model of protocells development in RNA world , was presented. Introduced processes are responsible for even distribution of genetic material, between progeny formations, during protocells division phase. Obtained results point out that such mechanisms might improve abilities of genetic information storage by population of protocells, thus they can support process of life emergence, however high fidelity of genes replication is required. Therefore, emergence of genes assortment process should follow improvement of RNA replicase abilities in the area of speed and replication reliability.
