The cenancestor is defined as the last common ancestor of every currently living being. Its nature has been inferred from the identification of homologous genes between archaea, bacteria, and eukaryotic lineages. These inferences indicate that the cenancestor had a relatively modern protein translation system, similar in complexity to that of a current cell. However, the key enzymes for the replication of genetic material and for cell membrane biosynthesis are not homologous in bacteria, archaea, and eukaryotes. Here, we briefly review the history of the concept of the last universal common ancestor and the different hypotheses proposed for its biology.

Eight out of ten Spaniards think the hole in the ozone layer, caused by human actions, is the key physical cause of climate change.

Les ciències socials i del comportament comparteixen moltes característiques amb les ciències «exactes» o «naturals», incloent-hi el compromís amb l'anàlisi sistemàtica de dades empíriques, ja siguen quantitatives o qualitatives. No obstant això, l'objecte de les ciències socials és de vegades més imprecís, i implica moltes entitats abstractes i els seus mètodes no sempre inclouen mesuraments o experimentació.
