Tibor Ganti proposed the chemoton as the minimal system capable of open-ended evolution, consisting of three stoichiometrically couplec autocatalytic systems, a metabolism, a membrane and a template replicating system. Our models show that an autocatalytic metabolic system couJd evolve only if chemical and physical niches could be discovered that limited the extent of tapping side-reactions.
