Biology, physics, chemistry, and, stamp collecting!

Recently, Nature published an essay about Schroedinger's book What is life? and how researchers are still looking towards quantum theory to solve the mystery of how life started. And, here is Pharyngula on the futility of the attempts to reduce biological processes to physics and chemistry. Unfortunately, the comments in Pharyngula's post are more about evolution than about the origins of life; or, so it seems to me. Wouldn't it be interesting to know what biologists think about looking for the origins of life in quantum theories? Any pointers to the relevant literature?
