Proteins and Amino Acids as the Origins of life

Scientists have been trying to figure out how life started on earth for quite a while now. One of the more famous experiments and research was conducted by Stanley Miller, where he tried to recreate the atmosphere of pre-life earth, and see if amino acids or complex molecules would arise.

A recent review of the samples from one of his experiments shows that it may have worked much more than was previously believed!

Amino Acids are essencial molecules that help make life possible.

Stanley Miller had believed his experiment a failure mainly due to the fact that 50 years ago we didn't have the technology that we have today. Today Scientists can read our genetic information much more precisely, especially thanks to DNA Testing
