It is also interesting that ozone and DNA both absorb UV light most
strongly at about the same wavelength.  As with so many other things,
however, I don't know enough to know if this is coincidence or if UV might
have been one of the "engines" helping to drive early evolution.


The opinions expressed above are well-reasoned and insightful.  Needless to
say, they are not those of my employer. (with apologies to Michael Feldman)
