RNA enzyme structure offers a glimpse into the origins of life

... been the first self-replicating molecule to arise billions of years ago on the evolutionary path toward the emergence of life. In all forms of life known today, the synthesis of DNA and RNA molecules is carried out by enzymes made of proteins. The instructions for making those proteins are contained in gene...

Bats prey on nocturnally migrating songbirds
