Krishnamurthy-Hud groups publish JACS paper

The biopolymer RNA is thought to have played a central role during the earliest evolutionary stages of life. However, how this macromolecule’s building blocks first formed and then assembled into RNA on an early Earth is an unanswered question that dates back more than 50 years. A paper recently published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society provides insight into the emergence of this very important biopolymer.
