Now, in a landmark discovery, chemist John Sutherland has created the conditions in which the building blocks of RNA, one of the key molecules of life and the probable precursor to DNA, assemble themselves naturally.
"At some point some of these threads will start joining together," Dr. Sutherland said.
Chemist John Sutherland has discovered a process by which ordinary chemicals could spontaneously form RNA molecules, the suspected building blocks of the first life on Earth.
Suzan Mazur » Origin of Life, the Pack & the Prize: Lawrence Krauss
I was very happy to see the prize going to John Sutherland, a member of the prizewinning team who was involved in ASU-OP's Origin of Life workshop and symposium a year ago.
will be visiting ASU
regularly and we'll be discussing this with him.
The interaction of these scientists was fascinating to see regarding issues of importance and standards of proof, like the early climate conditions on Earth and how they might be relevant to the building up of organic molecules - which is relevant to the work that John Sutherland
: Would you comment on why you think the proposal of British chemists, John Sutherland
and Matthew Powner, won the Lonsdale prize?
The organic chemistry work of John Sutherland
is perhaps THE most exciting work in the world, in my opinion, attempting to discover how organic chemistry in the absence of biology can allow the synthesis of molecules that can perform ultimately what RNA does.
The point is John Sutherland
is demonstrating we have tools to learn more about organic synthesis.
Darwin and Biology – waka waka waka
In what may be an enormously important piece of scientific work, chemist John D. Sutherland of the University of Manchester has discovered a reaction path by which RNA nucleotides can have been assembled from molecules likely to have been present in the Earth's early environment.
