Mining Genomes

Evolutionary Analysis with the Use of Mitochondrial Genomes

Phylogenetic trees are graphic representations of the relationships between different organisms. Traditionally based on morphological, physiological, and behavioral data, evolutionary analysis has been substantially changed by the use of molecular information. In this exercise, you will pose and evaluate a question relating to human evolution. You will use mitochondrial DNA sequences and the tools available at the Biology Workbench, managed by the San Diego Supercomputing Center at the University of California, San Diego.
