Just heard about a really clever and exciting piece of work by a German lab that claims to have found what it believes to be the physiology and habitat of LUCA by analysing old genetic molecules. They lived by fixing carbon from CO2 using hydrogen gas as energy. Much like the organisms that live in the oceans on volcanic vents.

Can anyone get the paper at the top of the page?
