Phylogeny is the primary tool used to understand the evolutionary relationship between various taxonomic groups. If someone finds an unknown bone fragment it is important to first identify which “class of animal” that fragment may relate to. The standard way would be to extract DNA, amplify and sequence a conserved region and construct a phylogenetic tree and then understand the Class to which it belongs. But this method involves various tasks such as multiple sequences alignment and… CONTINUE READING
