  1. The average number of molecules of the 16 covalent ribozymes after one time unit (t=1) and eight time units (t=8) without transfer steps, ordered from high to low. The left half of the table is for simulations starting with 16,000 food molecules (2,000 of each type), averaged over 50 runs. The right half of the table is for simulations starting with 1,600,000 food molecules (200,000 of each type), averaged over 20 runs.
