- Origin of Life
Is it unrealistic to presuppose that all of the steps that could lead to the formation of life could occur in one setting? So unravelling the physical and chemical mechanisms that led to the origin of life on Earth is still the same monumental task as when Oparin and Haldane put forward their hypothesis pertaining to the chemical origin of life in Currently there are four front runners, namely the panspermia, vesicle, metabolism and genetic first hypotheses. Panspermia contends that life was primarily made elsewhere in the Universe and then was delivered, ready-made, on to the Earth; the hypothesis does not elaborate on how life was made in space and therefore falls outside the remit of this paper. It has been put forward that such vesicles could either be made on the sea shores of early Earth or that long, up to 18C atoms, chains of hydrocarbons were delivered onto the Earth via meteorites, comets and asteroids.
Structural Biochemistry/The Oparin-Haldane Hypothesis
As the leaves on the lower branches of trees became scarce,the giraffe were forced to reach for the leaves on higher branches of trees. The animals with comparatively longer necks were certainly more fit because they could get leaves on higher branches which ensured their survival. But animals with short necks could not get those leaves so they had to die. Hence animals having longer necks were selected by the nature. Thus this practice carried over the generations and hence girafe got the longer necks. Accoring to Lamarck theory, this information of stretcheched neck carried over the generations and it was also transmitted to gametes making this feature permanent for giraffes. Increasing population requires more fuel, clothing, drinking water, houses, health facilities, etc.
Describe Oparin — Haldane theory of chemical origin of life.
The Oparin-Haldane hypothesis is a hypothesis independently developed by two scientists: Russian chemist A. Oparin and British scientist John Haldane. Both independently suggested that if the primitive atmosphere was reducing as opposed to oxygen-rich , and if there was an appropriate supply of energy, such as lightning or ultraviolet light,high temp of around K then a wide range of organic compounds might be synthesized. This means that the atmosphere had an excess of negative charge and could cause reducing reactions by adding electrons to compounds. Oparin suggested that these organic compounds could have undergone a series of reactions leading to more and more complex molecules. Under these circumstances, Oparin hypothesized that organic molecules could have formed from simple inorganic molecules. He proposed that the molecules formed colloid aggregates, or 'coacervates', in an aqueous environment.

Origin of Life
Organic compounds were synthesized nonbiologically by ultraviolet light energy, which in the absence of an ozone shield would penetrate the upper layers of the ocean. Without free O 2 to oxidize them, these organic molecules would be stable, and would accumulate in a warm, dilute broth that has been nicknamed "Haldane soup. The first living organism would be little more than a few chemical reactions wrapped up in a film or membrane to keep them from being diluted and destroyed.
In , the British biologist J. Haldane published one of the most important scenarios about the origin of life on earth of the first part of the twentieth century. John Burdon Sanderson Haldane — was one of the famous British biochemists and geneticists of the first part of the twentieth century. He notably participated to the reflexion about evolution and was one of the actors of the synthesis.
