Abstract

The origins of life probably involved autocatalysis. Kauffman's 1986 description of collectively autocatalytic sets—self-replicating reaction networks—and related ideas have influenced efforts to study the properties of reaction networks that may have given rise to life. Here, researchers discuss the impact of collectively autocatalytic sets on the field.
