From Skyla: “Prebiotic chemistry involves the study of complex systems described by chemical reactions. These reactions form large networks which can help us to visualize scenarios in which the first building blocks of life may have come together. In particular, the carboxysulfitic scenario presents an interesting narrative pertaining to the generation of Kreb’s Cycle intermediates, alluding to the development of a central carbon metabolism. The aim of this discussion is to talk through this network and outline the work being done to place constraints on the geochemical scenario in which this chemistry is proposed to have occurred. In addition to this, I want to discuss the importance of exploring the kinetics of these systems, with the hope of spurring on discussions surrounding a new framework for writing papers related to the origin of life.”
