Origin-of-life research has a big problem, and the DRT model purports to solve part of it. Critics of intelligent design have advanced the DRT model as the answer to the sequencing problem -- how genetic information in RNA (in the hypothetical RNA world) eventually could have been translated into more stable and versatile proteins. In a peer-reviewed paper published in BIO-Complexity, Stephen C. Meyer and Paul Nelson take on DRT.  In their critical review of the research they explain how the sequencing problem has not been solved, even partially.
