The origin of life from inanimate matter has been the focus of much research for decades, both experimentally and philosophically. Luisi takes the reader through the consecutive stages from prebiotic chemistry to synthetic biology, uniquely combining both approaches/5(8). Chemical elements are central for the existence of life and the richness and variety of our environment. Therefore, one of the basic questions concerns the origin of the chemical elements. The answer is complex because it relies on dynamical processes from elementary particles and nuclei to stars and galaxies. An interdisciplinary effort of. 22 rows  The various elements that make up the cell are: 59% Hydrogen (H) 24% Oxygen .   If these bacteria have a different requirement for elements than our own cells, do we also call these elements essential for human life? The human body contains at least 60 detectable chemical elements, however, only about 25 of these elements are believed to participate in the healthy functioning of the human body [ 5 ].Cited by:

The elements of the periodic table are arranged alphabetically by chemical name, with the exception of elements ^, which are discussed under the entry transfermium elements. Although the entries vary in length (e.g., actinium is three pages long, carbon is twelve pages), each follows the same format. Chapter 02 The Origin and Chemistry of Life Multiple Choice Questions 1. Spontaneous generation was first proposed as A. a concept to explain the formation of the first living cells on earth. B. a concept to explain the evolution of simple chemicals into complex macromolecules.   When Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species years ago he consciously avoided discussing the origin of life. However, analysis of some other texts written by Darwin, and of the correspondence he exchanged with friends and colleagues demonstrates that he took for granted the possibility of a natural emergence of the first life by:   Biomolecule, any of numerous substances that are produced by cells and living organisms. Biomolecules have a wide range of sizes and structures and perform a vast array of functions. The four major types of biomolecules are carbohydrates, lipids, .

Origin of the Chemical Elements. During the process of stellar evolution nuclear fusion reactions take place within a star. These give rise to the formation of the chemical elements. Clues to the processes involved may be deduced from the graph below, which shows the cosmic abundances of elements (y-axis) plotted against atomic number (x-axis). The selection of the chemical elements by a particular cell from the environment involves a series of steps, the complexity of which depends upon the organism.
