Introductory genetics courses often include evolutionary genetics concepts such as sequence homology and functional conservation. It is usually assumed that two sequences showing homology (i.e., sharing a common ancestral sequence) perform the same molecular function. The correlation, however, does not always hold true, and evidence for functional conservation must come from functional studies. In this study we describe a genetics laboratory class that demonstrates functional conservation… CONTINUE READING
