    DNA synthesis

    Advertisements



    Hello,
    Is it possible to synthesize a random DNA chain simply melting the component in water ( phosphate (minus charged), ribose, adenine, cytosine , timine, gouanine and enough oxygene)? Or would it be more complex?
    Thanks for ur help

    It is impossible. We need energy to create life. I think the first life form was RNA so if you want to make life, you better start with RNA .

    Thx for the reply, but could u be more explicit?
    I'm not talking about life or any organism that would use this chain of DNA, and the chain would probably sooner or later be destroyed by UV-rays.
    But moleculary, the structure of DNA is simple: http://academic.brooklyn.cuny.edu/bi...omponents.html
    Couldn't chemotactist make the molecule to assemblate to spontenually form DNA (phosopho-diester link, hydrogenate bridge, steric complementarity would be involved). Where would energy be required?

    I saw this on the Science channel

    I saw how they hypothesized life beginning on the Science channel. They show thunder and lightning cooked up the miieu of life.

    I think you need a lot of energy to make all the bonds of life (disulfide, ionic, and all). How much energy can you put in before you fried all the substrates before it form bonds?

    You start with RNA and then gradually and eventually proceed.
