Overview

Chemical Evolution: Structure and Model of the First Cell is a timely, up to date review and evaluation of the recent rapid evolution of theoretical and empirical knowledge in the vast, interdisciplinary study of the origins of life. With 35 contributions authored by 95 of the foremost scientists, it discusses many aspects of the origin of the first cell: exobiology in the solar system and beyond; the early paleontological record; physical, chemical, biological and informational aspects of the origin and structure of the membrane and the cell itself. The publication of the book commemorates the centenary of Alexander Oparin.
Audience: Graduate students and researchers in the areas of basic, earth and life sciences who contribute to the study of chemical evolution and the origin of life.
