    There is a very interesting theory on the beginning of life at http://www.consumer-logic.co.uk

    It suggests the first protein was produced by two amino acids joining (methionine and tryptophan)

    This protein it is said was encoded by mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA)

    We still have this mtDNA in our bodies today, it is what regulates circadian rhythms (our body clock)
