Sequence of which of the following is used to
know the phylogeny : -
(1) m-RNA (2) r-RNA
(3) t-RNA (4) DNA
In molecular phylogenetic analysis, the sequence of a common gene or protein can be used to assess the evolutionary relationship of species.
Phylogenetics also provides the basis for comparative genomics, which is a more recent term that came into existence in the age of genomics. Comparative genomics is the study of the interrelationships of genomes of different species. Comparative genomics helps identify regions of similarity and differences among genomes
@sunitasaxena but correct answer is rRna ,it is question from aipmt 2002.Please explain how
16S ribosomal RNA (or 16S rRNA) is the component of the 30S small subunit of a prokaryotic ribosome that binds to the Shine-Dalgarno sequence. The genes coding for it are referred to as 16S rRNA gene and are used in reconstructing phylogenies, due to the slow rates of evolution of this region of the gene.
