Abstract

Life today requires the transmission of genetic information in the form of DNA, and a large number of catalytic and structural functions carried out by proteins. Without DNA to specify useful sequences of amino acids, functional proteins would not exist. Without proteins to carry out high-fidelity DNA replication and gene expression, DNA could not serve as the genetic material. How could either arise without the other?
