We show first how a temperature gradient can lead to giant DNA accumulation
by thermophoresis and to DNA sequence amplification in a convection set-up.
Non-equilibrium thermodynamics can thus help to solve some nagging problems
of critical concentration and sequence selection in a prebiotic soup.
We show that a vesicle bioreactor can function for many days in an
homeostatis state producing proteins. This is a first necessary step
to artificial cells. The next step will be vesicle replication.
