Handedness, origin of life and evolution

Handedness, origin of life and evolution

Physics Today 44(7): 33-41

Biological polymers have a preferred chirality ond can replicate themselves. Physical arguments provide insight into which of these unique and apparently related properties evolved first, and by what mechanism.
