Can the Origin of the Genetic Code Be Explained by Direct RNA Templating?


Origin-of-life research has a big problem, and the DRT model purports to solve part of it. Critics of intelligent design have advanced the DRT model as the answer to the sequencing problem — how genetic information in RNA (in the hypothetical RNA world) eventually could have been translated into more stable and versatile proteins. In a peer-reviewed paper published in BIO-Complexity, Stephen C. Meyer and Paul Nelson take on DRT.  In their critical review of the research they explain how the sequencing problem has not been solved, even partially. Read the paper here.
