In studying evolution, a common characteristic can be compared to determine how much variability exist among species
In studying evolution, a common characteristic can be compared to determine how much variability exist among species. An example in vertebrate species is the umber of differences in hemoglobin.;the follow table compares hemoglobin from other species to that of humans;Species # of different Amino Acids Estimate millions of years from common ancestors;Rhesus monkey 8 26;Mouse 25 80;chicken 45 275;frog 70 330;Lamprey 125 450;a)find the average number of years per mutation in hemoglobin for each species listed?;b) Find the mutation rate in mutation per million years for each species.;c) Which animal shows a mutation rate closet to the average?;d)what percentage of amino acids are different from humans in the monkey and the lamprey?
