Possible Ways of Identifying the Abiogenesis of Biochemically Important Compounds

  • T. E. Pavlovskaya


Five decades lie between our time and the time when A. I. Oparin put forward his hypothesis of the origin of life on Earth (1). Oparin’s hypothesis has become a theoretical stimulation all over the world for experimental modelling of life’s origin; this research is one of the main trends in modern biology. A wealth of investigations on theoretical and experimental problems, particularly on prebiological chemical evolution, on the main indications for this stage of evolution, and on the ways inorganic matter is converted to organic matter have been carried out during these five decades.
