Scientists identify molecule that could have helped cells thrive on early Earth - Tue 08 Oct 2019 08:58:PM

A new study offers an explanation for how ''protocells'' could have emerged on early Earth, eventually leading to the cells we know today. The work suggests that molecules called cyclophospholipids may have been the ingredient necessary for protocells to form important internal structures called vesicles, which likely kicked off the evolutionary process.
