  Life
A useful characteristic upon which to base a definition of life is that of descent with modification: the ability of a life form to produce offspring that are like its parent or parents, but with the possibility of some variation due to chance.
In all known life forms (assuming prions are not counted as such), the genetic material is primarily DNA or the related molecule, RNA.
The question of whether life exists elsewhere in the universe remains open, but analyses such as the Drake equation have been used to estimate the probability of such life existing.

 Life - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Life is the characteristic state of organisms and individual cells.
One could say that the property of life is inherited; hence, sterile hybrid species such as the mule are considered life although not themselves capable of reproduction.
Yet another definition: "Life is a self-organizing, cannibalistic system consisting of a population of replicators that are capable of mutation, around most of which homeostatic, metabolizing organisms evolve." This definition does not include flames, but does include worker ants, viruses and mules.

Life itself is a set of processes that are carried out by an organism causing it to survive.
It is important to note that life is a definition that applies primarily at the level of species, so even though many individuals of any given species do not reproduce, possibly because they belong to specialized sterile castes (such as ant workers), these are still considered forms of life.
Life is the whole process which exists from birth to death and we have the result in us through what happened in ourselves.

 BioMed Central | Full text | Thesaurus-based disambiguation of gene symbols
Overall accuracy of the disambiguation algorithm, defined as the percentage of abstracts in our test set in which the correct meaning of the homonym was chosen, was 88.9% when OMIM annotations were used as reference description.
This suggests that excellent disambiguation results can be obtained with relatively simple reference descriptions, and offers a viable way for massive acquisition of such descriptions from literature links in genetic databases, which in view of the extent of the homonym problem should be automatic for all practical purposes.
The disambiguation algorithm compares the textual context of a homonym in a document with a reference description of each of the genes that the homonym may possibly denote.

Disambiguation may have several manifestations, one of which is to use certain optional words like that in between two clauses of a complex sentence.
This class of linguistic structures are composed of those that present the speaker with the choice of including an optional constituent for the sake of disambiguating his utterance or to forgo the use of such words for being economical.
Disambiguation and economization forces were found to have a significant effect on the choice of optional words (e.g.

 Wikipedia: Evolution
Most biologists believe in common descent: that all life on Earth is descended from one common ancestor.
Further evidence of the universal ancestry of life is that abiogenesis has never been observed under controlled conditions, indicating that the origin of life from non-life, is either very rare or only happens under conditions that are not at all like those of modern earth.
Therefore, life is allowed to persist over great spans of time, in the form of evolving species.

Volcanic activity, comet impacts, and the existence of life in the form of microorganisms such as methanogens are among possible sources.
It was recently shown that methane could be produced by a non-biological process involving water, carbon dioxide, and the mineral olivine, which is known to be common on Mars.
Biological activity is one of the explanations suggested for the presence of traces of methane in the Martian atmosphere, but other explanations not involving life are generally considered more probable.

 Half-life Summary
As defined by geophysicists, the half-life (or half-value period) of a substance is the time required for one-half of the atoms in any size sample to radioactively decay.
As with radioactive decay this half life is independent of the concentration.
The half-life of a quantity subject to exponential decay is the time required for the quantity to decay to half of its initial value.

 Origin of life
It is now known that microbial life is plentiful up to five kilometers below the earth's surface in the form of archaea, which are generally considered to have originated around the same time or earlier than bacteria, most of which live on the surface including the oceans.
It is supposed that a rain of cometary material on the early Earth could have brought significant quantities of complex organic molecules, and that it is possible that primitive life itself may have formed in space was brought to the surface along with it.
A related hypothesis holds that life may have formed first on early Mars, and been transported to Earth when crustal material was blasted off of Mars by asteroid and comet impacts to later fall to Earth's surface.
