New study reveals life’s earliest evolution was more complicated than previously suspected 

New research from Tokyo Tech and the Max Planck Institute suggests understanding early life may be trickier than previously thought.Their analyses confirm other work which suggested that only a limited understanding of the lifestyle of the most ancient cells can be derived from DNA comparison. While it is clear that we don’t know what the first organisms metabolized or where they lived, their work provides insight into how quickly they may have evolved billions of years ago.
