1. A mechanism of chirality formation in super-rarefied
space has been proposed which is based on the concept of the orientation
of molecules in natural physical fields. The mechanism has been substantiated
both theoretically and experimentally.

2. A model of arising of asymmetry in the bioworld
is proposed. It is supposed that chemical evolution on Earth has started
from the uniform distribution of enantomorphous forms of substances. It
is postulated and substantiated the role of Earth rotation in the selection
of asymmetry signs of living and inorganic macrostructures, which could
lead to the selection of asymmetric substructures (i.e. microstructures
forming macrostructures) including D- and L- forms of molecules. It was
established that the evolution is described both by thermodynamic and kinetic
factors and by the trajectory factor (symmetry or chirality) which should
be accounted for in rotating coordinate systems. The Coriolis forces can
support spiral biostructures to a different degree depending on the habitation
area of organism.
