This Minireview provides an appropriate opportunity to demonstrate the connection between the results of some early experimental and theoretical investigations of vesicle budding and the more recent application of the concepts developed there to the process of vesicle self-reproduction. Herein, we also explain why vesicle budding could have preceded the establishment of cellular life.
