Using Amino Acid Sequences to Show Evolutionary Relationships

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.
