This chapter describes the experiments related to the origin of life developed by Miller & Urey, Fox & Harada, and Rode oriented to the polymerization of the prebiotic proteins. It is explained how each experiment with a different number of amino acids, proportion and methodology, made it possible to find a polar profile for their dipeptides and proteins, and how this information was used to study the trend of each experiment. The results show a common polar profile with the most preserved genes from three microorganisms.

Keywords: Biogenesis, Dipeptides, Fox & Harada experiment, Genes, Miller & Urey experiment, Origin of life, Prebiotic proteins, Rode experiment.
