A Hypothesis for Protocell Division on the Early Earth
Review article, 2019

I hypothesize that the division of the first protocell might have occurred before genetic polymers were synthesized and redistributed. In the light of recent findings, it is conceivable that the first division event of a primitive protocell might have occurred at the same time as its surface-assisted formation.
