Discussion

In early life it is entirely plausible that many organisms were incapable of producing all of the the chemicals which they required to survive and reproduce. In such an environment symbiosis could allow early life to share resouces to mutual benefit. This paper investigates various aspects of symbiotic/parasitic relationships of protocells.
