Learners investigate the amino acid sequences of vertebrates. In this biochemical evidence for evolution lesson plan, students compare the number of matching and non-matching amino acids in chimpanzees, fish and mice. They construct a graph to compare the data and they calculate percent similarities and differences between species. They answer 8 analysis questions about similarities of species based on their amino acid sequences.
