Using Amino Acid Sequences to Show Evolutionary Relationships

This resource also includes:

Junior biologists compare the amino acid sequences from fragments of five different globin molecules. They count the letter differences between each species pair. They construct a graphic representation of the evolutionary relationships among the five molecules, a phylogenetic tree. This lesson plan is not engaging, but it is beneficial for an advanced biology class.
