Excellent article, and news, and a great post Cal. Love that these microdroplets have the potential to form scaffolding for lipid bilayers.

As a lipid amphiphile can also assemble around certain droplets, this further shows the droplets’ potential compatibility with and scaffolding ability for nascent biomolecular systems that could have coexisted in complex chemical systems.

Abiochemistry bootstrapping into biochemistry. :)
