This Creating Phylogenetic Trees from DNA Sequences interactive also includes:
How closely are animals related? Check their phylogenetic trees! The use of DNA sequencing altered our understanding of these relationships. Individuals explore and gain a better understanding of how scientists sort, align, and determine closeness with the help of DNA.
