In this activity students will build models of DNA sequences from the hemoglobin proteins of humans, gorillas, chimpanzees, ape, and a common ancestor, Using that information they will hypothesize evolutionary relationships between the organisms.
Students should understand the structure of DNA and basic genetics.
*This is a model of DNA constructed from hypothetical data, since we have not yet found DNA for a common ancestor. The other sequences are real.
