What slime-covered structures are thought by some scientists to be where the first cells might have formed?
Coacervate is supposed as first slime covered cell.
The scientists are in favor of that first of all the organic polymers are aggregated in the water like a ball. The complex polymers are covered by the slimy layer and finally these complex slime-layered started self-multiplication. This structure is named as ''çoacervate'. The coacervate evolved into first self duplicating cell. Thank
