Abstract

This work aims to consider simplified models of protocells in order to describe their general behaviors. The advantage of the modelling approach is that the early protocells of life-forms on Earth are not reproduced in the present time. However, the problem is considered as a right track to understand the origin of life as well as to work with more objective synthesis of new drugs.
