Models of prebiotic evolution.
1) We investigate the Metabolically Coupled Replicator System (MCRS), in which replicators create persistent coexisting community both in ecological and in evolutionary time scale using the RNA World scenario.
2) We study theoretically eco-evolutionary interactions among encapsulated replicators, metabolic processes, and membrane within prebiotic liposomes.
