Molecular Biology and Primate Phylogenetics

Pairs of high school biologists compare amino acid differences in the beta hemoglobin of different primates. They use the information collected to construct a phylogenic tree. Follow-up discussion questions are provided. This is a valuable two-part lesson plan for your advanced biology course. Use it when teaching about common ancestry.
