Nevertheless, the book gives a quite up-to-date review on both theoretical and practical aspects of research about origin of life. Part of the discussion is rather A comprehensive review of key events that are proposed by the two authors during the evolution of life/5. How did life on earth originate? Did replication or metabolism come first in the history of life? In this book, Freeman Dyson examines these questions and discusses the two main theories that try to explain how naturally occurring chemicals could organize themselves into living creatures. The majority view is that life began with replicating molecules, the precursors of modern genes.
From the emergence of life, to Leewenhoek's microscopic world, to GMO crops, The Biology Book presents landmarks in the most widely studied scientific field.

No new notable research or hypothesis on the subject appeared until , when Alexander Oparin reasoned that atmospheric oxygen prevents the synthesis of certain organic compounds that are necessary building blocks for life.
