Molecular Evolution and Phylogenetics

  title={Molecular Evolution and Phylogenetics},
  author={Albert C. L. Wang},
We can place more than just organisms into trees: individual genes from the genomes of various organisms can also be placed into trees, and from these gene phylogenies, we can often infer the species phylogenies. Often, this is done with the geological record in mind: not all branches of the tree of life terminate in the present – there are many that end in the various mass extinctions that have occurred in the past (e.g. K-T extinction of dinosaurs).
