Life From Non-Life

Evolution of Chemicals in a Test Tube.

Scientists have created RNA enzymes that replicate themselves without being a living cell. The enzymes undergo life-like evolution as well.

From the article:
"Since he and colleague Tracey Lincoln first succeeded in creating this artificial genetic system that can undergo self-sustained replication and evolution last year, the molecules have changed dramatically as they evolve better and better solutions."

There you have it: abiogenesis.
