Molecular Evolution

mechanisms for the rise of life on Earth

The diverse plants, animals, and other living things that currently populate the Earth are thought to have evolved from a common primordial ancestor. Atomic structures have revealed the molecular mechanisms of evolution, showing how molecules change by random mutation and recombination, and are selected for optimal function.
